Investopedia explains 'Confusion Of Goods'


Confusion of goods can either happen on purpose or by accident. If two or more people mutually decide to commingle their goods, then it is considered for the betterment of each, and no criminal or negligent act is taking place. However, if one person deliberately mixes goods or property with another without their consent, it is considered unlawful and the unknowing party may be awarded full rights to the entire property.
