Judges are talking:
“…It is not correct to assume that a right of action enacted into a statutory provision is ineffective merely because it has its origin in the common law. This is not so. The common law tort of passing-off in respect of other matters still exists, but in respect of trade marks. In this country the right of action of passing-off relating to the infringement of registered trademarks is statutory and can be found only in section 3 of the Trade Marks Act 1965.”…Per Kabiri-Whyte, J.S.C.Patkun Industries Ltd v.
