• The Res Cogitans case: a highly significant decision that means a supplier of goods reserves title to them pending payment, but permits the recipient to consume some or all of those goods before the property passes, then the contract is not one of sale at all. Benjamin’s Sale of Goods up-to-date new edition guides you through this case law and its implications for those working in this area.
