Confusion of Goods Law and Legal Definition

Confusion of goods means mixture of similar goods belonging to different owners where identifying the goods of each owner is not possible. If confusion of goods occurs by common consent of all owners, then they are considered owners in common. But, if the mixture is done purposely by one single owner, then that owner loses all the right in goods unless (1) the goods can be identified and separated among each owner; or (2) the goods of the person who mixed it is equal in value to the goods with which they were mixed. Confusion of goods is also termed intermixture of goods.
