Abstract

This article will concentrate on Dutch law and US law. It will address the question how these legal systems treat prescription and limitation of actions regarding movable property. The central questions will be, first, whether prescription should run against an owner who cannot prevent the prescription or limitation period from running against him or her, and, second, what the disadvantages are if a possessor/defendant cannot rely on a limitation period or acquisitive prescription against a plaintiff.

Keywords: international property law
