Abstract

This article discusses the requirement of goodwill in the law of passing-off and considers the extent to which the law of passing-off entitles a foreign trader, who may not have a place of business within the jurisdiction, to restrain a local trader from using the same indicia of origin for its products or services. A brief discussion on the requirement of goodwill in other common law jurisdictions will also be made.
