Description

This work adopts a comprehensive approach to explaining the key issues concerning the ‘Classic Trinity’ of goodwill, damage, and misrepresentation. This new edition is fully updated with the latest case law in the UK and Commonwealth. Renowned for its clear analysis of the law, this is the essential reference on the subject of passing-off.

  • Explains the importance of goodwill, its creation, ownership, and issues of extinction and revival
  • Outlines the key requirements necessary to prove damage
  • Advises on the basis of an action for misrepresentation, addressing what makes a representation false and who is liable
  • The latest edition reflects upon recent case law in the UK and Commonwealth, including the Court of Appeal judgment in Fenty v Arcadia and the Supreme Court decision in Starbucks v British Sky Broadcasting Group
  • Analysis of Interflora v Marks & Spencer and how it has defined the relationship between registered trade mark infringement and passing-off
  • Fage v Chobani and the protection of descriptive terms.
