Abstract:     
This recent UK Supreme Court decision has confirmed that the “hard line” perspective to interpreting “goodwill” in the common law action for passing off remains good law in England. There are, however, subtle hints in the judgment that going forward, the court may be prepared to consider and endorse (pragmatic) exceptions or extensions to the “hard line” in appropriate cases.
