When someone or some company is accused of willfully doing harm to another's business interests, reputation or relationships, the applicable, broad legal term may be "business tort." The businesspeople involved are more likely to think and speak in terms of fraud or misrepresentation; libel, slander or defamation; trademark or copyright infringement; or unfair competition, for example.
