Abstract

Comments on the inconsistency under the English law of passing off that a UK trader may establish the requisite goodwill in its goods or service without showing that it has a customer base whereas, for foreign traders, a finding of goodwill is contingent on evidence of a UK customer base. Evaluates the distinction that has been drawn in extraterritorial passing off cases between "goodwill" and "mere reputation".
