Wilko Retail Ltd v Buyology Ltd

Practice – Summary judgment. The proceedings concerned an action brought by the claimant for infringement of three United Kingdom registered trade marks concerning the word 'WILKO' and for passing off. The defendant admitted infringement. The claimant sought summary judgment and an order that the defendant disclose the names and addresses of its suppliers of the infringing goods. The Chancery Division held that, whilst there was jurisdiction to grant a Norwich Pharmacal order, on the balance of irreparable harm, as appeared from the evidence, the disclosure sought would not be granted.
