Head note

This article analyses whether it is possible to defend precedence of trademarks regulations over the unfair competition law after the implementation of the UCP Directive by Law 29/2009, amending the existing Unfair Competition and Advertising regulations in order to improve the rights of consumers and users.  The author is clearly in favor of precedence of the trademarks regulations over the Unfair Competition Law.
