In market economies, in both developing and developed countries, fair competition between enterprises is seen as the essential means of satisfying the supply and demand of the economy and serving the interests of consumers and society as a whole. In addition, competition is one of the main drivers of innovation. The right to unfair competition, including the Trade Secret Act, is considered necessary to ensure the fair functioning of the market and to foster innovation by punishing anti-competitive commercial behaviour. As you already know, the advantage of a patent is that it gives you a property right for a certain period of time, but in exchange, you have to share your secret with the world. .
