Palm off

To misrepresent inferior goods of one producer as superior goods made by a reputable, well-regarded competitor in order to gain commercial advantage and promote sales.

The doctrine of palming off is applied to the particular facts of a case in which the defendant is accused of engaging in UNFAIR COMPETITION against the plaintiff.
