Case Comment

Gillette v.

citation(s): [1932] Ex. C.R. 54

copyright 1997 Donald M. Cameron, Aird & Berlis




The Decision

At p. XXX

"In this case, the defendants were not the manufacturers of the blades sold by them, they were apparently imported from abroad. The plaintiff has however proven a sale by the defendants of the blade which I have described. This case differs in my opinion from the English cases to which I have referred, in that the defendants themselves sold the blade, I hold, solely for use in the plaintiff's blade holder, and it differs also in that the blade is separately claimed as an element in the combination. There is no evidence that the blade sold by the defendants might be used in blade holders other than the plaintiffs."
