Case summary last updated at 02/02/2020 19:10 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Hotel Cipriani v Cipriani (Grosvenor Street)

C ran famous Hotel Cipriani in Venice. D ran a restaurant of same name in Mayfair. C sued for passing off. Held:
·        Mere fact that C has a reputation in England does not show UK goodwill.
Ø  To have goodwill C must always have customers amongst the general UK public
Ø  no matter how great its reputation in UK
·        Is doubtful whether there is need for ‘direct bookings’
Ø  However on facts is clear customers book for C’s hotel directly from UK
Ø  Thus no need to decide
·        On facts, C had goodwill in UK.
