Use of metatags on website may infringe trade-mark: Red Label v 411 Travel BuysUse of metatags on website may infringe trade-mark: Red Label v 411 Travel Buys

It affirmed the lower court decision of Justice Manson which had held that, on the facts of the case, the use of metatags on web pages did not constitute passing-off, trade-mark infringement or depreciation of goodwill.
