“Exploring Legal Issues in Business Financing and Competition: A Case Study Analysis of the Bills of Exchange Act 1949 and Competition Act 2010”

Business Financing
Michael is a contractor who typically receives payment for his work via bank transfer. For his latest January 2024 project, the client accidentally issued a cheque instead. Upon inspection, Michael noticed the date written on the cheque was 1 June 2024 and contained several spelling mistakes in the company name. Additionally, the cheque was written in Malay language, but Michael is a German that does not understand Malay. On top of that, Michael noticed that the cheque was written using a combination of pencil, and purple coloured ink.
Use Bills of Exchange Act 1949 and decisions of previous cases to explain to Michael the validity of the cheque. 
Business Competition
ChargeCo and PowerVolt are the two major companies that dominate the EV market. Both offer similar fast-charging stations and subscription plans for access. They operated individually and are not connected to each other.
In November 2023, both ChargeCo and PowerVolt simultaneously announced identical price increases for their subscriptions and in January 2024, they entered into an agreement on their market share. In the agreement,  ChargeCo focuses on urban areas whereas and PowerVolt concentrates on rural locations, avoiding direct competition between one another.
Use Competition Act 2010 and decision of previous cases (from www.mycc.gov.my)  to explain whether this conduct amounts to the prohibitions by Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC). Also explain the remedial action that MyCC can take if these conducts are found to be in breach of the Act.
