Article concerns ways of examination, when the unfair competition practice set forth in the article 15 sec. 1 p. 4 of Combating Unfair Competition Act takes place. Authors present different views on meaning of “impeding market access” in this provision and support the concept that it should be considered as one of prerequisites of committing this practice. They also explain why this prerequisite should be examined in every case before the court. Further, authors describe how, with the economical approach, this examination can be executed.
