Property is the ‘right of ownership’. Title is the source of right. A right is vested in a person who holds a valid title. Generally, the title must have been obtained from the owner himself. But there could be cases when the title is acquired from non-owners. The related question that arises in such cases is whether or not the buyer has obtained a good title. The law protects the true owner by providing that he alone can provide a good title
In an interconnected world, businesses are increasingly global. A Barbie doll is touched by hands in at least four countries. The ethylene for its plastic comes from Saudi Arabia, the plastic body is made in Taiwan, the golden nylon hair comes from Japan, the doll itself is assembled and painted in a shop floor in China, and finally, one can find the doll on the shelves of a toy shop in California. This is the extent of the global nature of businesses. In this era of global transfer of goods, international commercial contracts attain much significance. These contracts are the ones that enable the smooth flow of international trade. However, by the inherent international nature of these contracts, there is ambiguity about the jurisdiction of filing suits in case of problems in the execution of the contract. It is often that each party wants to file the suit in the jurisdiction that it deems may award a favourable decision. A way to resolve this is by the use of anti-suit injunctions, which prevents parallel proceedings on the same dispute. The smooth performance and quick resolution of disputes arising is important to facilitate international trade and sustain faith in the existing international trade system.
