Abstract

Many United States courts have ruled upon the question whether the use of someone else's trade mark name as a metatag constitutes trade mark infringement and/or unfair competition. The purpose of this discussion is to: (1) explain the concept "metatag"; (2) discuss why United States courts maintain that the use of someone else's trade mark name as a metatag does not constitute trade mark infringement and/or unfair competition under given circumstances; and (3) determine whether such use constitutes trade mark infringement and/or unlawful competition in terms of the South African Trade Marks Act 194 of 1993 and the South African common law.
