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)
