Burton's Legal Thesaurus. William C. Burton. 2006
Where infringement of intellectual property rights has been established, the Courts can make an order relating to the property including delivery up or destruction to prevent infringing goods getting or remaining on the market. Destruction will not normally be ordered if infringement can be remedied by removing offending marks from the goods.
