What’s the halocho if a person who works for somebody who sells online jewellery wants to leave and set up his own company using the same suppliers and sell in the same places (ebay/amazon etc) at a cheaper price. Is it considered stealing? Does it make a difference if this same owner set up this business under the same circumstances. (i.e. working for somebody else). How about selling on different websites / creating own website.
Thank you in advance.
As long as no non compete contract was signed it would be permissible to break off and create your own business. Internet commerce which has an unlimited number of vendors, which reach across the globe does not pose a problem of taking away from another’s business.
