Chapter 648

Notes of Decisions

Where plaintiff adduced ample testimony of confusing similarity of assumed business names, and defendants conceded that they did not begin doing business under their earlier-registered assumed name for approximately 12 years after its registra­tion and approximately 9 years after plaintiff registered its similar name, judg­ment enjoining defendants from use of earlier-registered similar name was affirmed. Woodburn Const. v. Gen. Develop­ment, 53 Or App 349, 632 P2d 23 (1981)

Since purpose of this chapter is to protect public and not private rights, defendant was not entitled to injunc­tion preventing plaintiff from using assumed business name. Photo & Sound Co. v. Corvallis, 291 Or 105, 628 P2d 733 (1981)
