The paper addresses the question whether strengthening of the consumer protection legislation at the supranational and national level as well globally, causes more than noticeable changes in the role and importance of the unfair competition law.

The basic dilemma to be addressed is therefore, whether the unfair competition law through the development and strengthening of (modern) consumer law underwent a sort of erosion and has been a centre of gravity shifts from unfair competition in the consumer law and whether, despite the above fact, these two legal areas might be complementary.
