  • Headnote
    The article is about the question of whether, under Dutch law, businesses can sue competitors for violating the rules against unfair commercial practices, which is not explicitly provided for in the Dutch implimentation of the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. The author connects the discusions about this topic to a decision by the Dutch Supreme Court requiring interpretation of Dutch law in accordance with EU Directives. (Supreme Court, 17 January 2014 ECLI:NL:HR:2014:88, Ryanair/PR Aviation)
