Acceptance of anticipatory breach raises duty to mitigate

Title will pass when goods are irrevocably attached, not when payment is made

Cloth still of merchantable quality if can be sold at lower price

Improper packaging is breach of condition and entitles buyer to reject

Breach of s 15(a) if seller had title, but not right to sell in that form

Perishing (partial loss through theft)

Breaching party is liable for foreseeable losses

Keeping goods for more than a reasonable time will imply acceptance

Dispute resolution clause provides sufficient certainty

Title need not pass for protection under s 17(a)

Strict liability for seller's breach of s 18 ACL

Title can never be accepted where goods are stolen (nemo dat)

Skin condition not disclosed at purchase led to failure of suit
