CONFUSION OF GOODS Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

The inseparable fl intermixture of property belonging to different ” owners; properly confined to the pouring together of fluids, but used in a wider sense to designate any indistinguishable compound of elements belonging to different owners. The term “confusion” is applicable to a mixing of chattels of one and the same general descrip- L tion, differing thus from “accession,” which is where various materials are united in one product. Confusion of goods arises wherever the goods of two or more persons are so blended as to have become undistinguishable. 1 Schooler, Pers. Prop. 41. Treat v. Barber, 7 Conn. 280; Robinson v. Holt, 39 N. 11. 563, 75 Am. Dec. r 233; Belcher v. Commission Co., 26 Tex. Civ. I App. 60, 62 S. W. 924
