English translation: Kartellgesetz

German term or phrase: KG
This abbreviation appears in a Swiss Federal Court decision regarding a claim of unfair competition:

Art. 6 Abs. 1 KG.

It appears to refer to a body of law (probably a "Gesetz"), so "Kommanditgesellschaft" does not seem applicable. Also, since this lawsuit involves businesses, I don't think "KG" stands for "Kirchengesetz."

Thanks!
