This excerpt taken from the JDSU 10-K filed Sep 30, 2005.
JDS Uniphase seeks to outperform its competition fairly and honesty. The Company seeks competitive advantages through superior performance, not unethical or illegal business practices. Each employee should endeavor to deal fairly with the Companys customers, suppliers, competitors and employees. None should take unfair advantage of anyone through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any unfair business practice.
Satisfied customers are essential to the Companys success, and they make a substantial commitment when they place an order with JDS Uniphase. In return for their commitment, customers and potential customers are entitled to honesty and integrity in all their dealings with the Company. Accordingly, Company employees must be certain when making commitments that those commitments can be honored.
Similarly, JDS Uniphase products are sold based on the Companys reputation for superior products and service. All claims made about products and competitors products should be accurate and supportable. Similarly, all employees should be alert to any situation where a competitor may be attempting to mislead customers, or potential customers, about JDS Uniphase
products. Appropriate management or the Companys Legal Department should be informed about any such cases.
