On the other hand, a four-year period was deemed appropriate for the sale of shares in an information technology activity when this restriction applied to specific computer procurement and management services at Southern Cross Computer Systems Pty Ltd/Palmer (No. 2)  VSC 460. Here, sellers generally take a closer look at the language of their asset purchase agreement and employment contracts related to the sale, in order to decipher the restrictions they have actually agreed. And that`s when there are many conflicts between sellers and buyers that, at some point, lead to costly litigation over the extent of non-competition obligations. Parties to a competition inability agreement should scrupulously comply with the conditions of applicability in order to increase the likelihood of facing legal challenges and adequately protecting the acquired business. Non-competitive agreements made in connection with the sale of a business may, as a general rule, be further than non-competitive agreements in the employment context. In North Carolina, a non-competitive agreement to sell a business must be entered into in writing (1); (2) be appropriate in time and territory; (3) be reasonably necessary to protect the legitimate business interests of the purchaser; and (4) not to intervene in the public interest. In the event of a court challenge to an unaccounted for, the burden of proof is that these conditions are met for the execution party (i.e. the purchaser of the business). In Freedom, the Court considered “reasonable” restrictions on deeds, surfaces and time in order to protect the good revalant of the business being sold. The deduction was directed against the director of the accounting and non-accounting services salesman for a period of three (3) years in a 100 km area around the company. Two points of the Tribunal (apart from those mentioned above) that ultimately found the clause inappropriate were: 7.1 Restrictions.
In order to encourage the buyer to enter into this agreement, each party to the seller commits and accepts the following conditions: (a) restrictions. For a period of five (5) years beginning at the “restriction period”), that part of the seller may not authorize any member of that part of the seller, directly or indirectly, alone or in the name of a person who exists or was created below (except in the name of the buyer) and does not allow the sole part of that part of the seller, group or one of its related companies: i) the design, development, assembly, manufacturing, manufacturing, construction, supply, installation, marketing, sale or supply of circuits, systems or designs of power and control semiconductors (including firmware), reference designs for semiconductor components or semiconductor products for low-energy energy production , wireless charging, isolated switching or any other Restricted Business application around the world (the “restricted area”), including the “restricted area,” directly or indirectly, an organizer, owner, trader, investor, lender, lessor, partner, joint venture, shareholder, agent, director, director, director, representative, partner, advisor or representative of a restricted company (including, or as an agent or similar, in any person directly or indirectly engaged in any of the activities that precede or operates a limited activity).
