1b.1 Chwee Kin Keong v Digilandmall. Pte Ltd
Fact: The respondent was a company that sold information technology products across the
internet. As part of its business it operated a website owned by Hewlett Packard and its own
website ('the Digilandmall website'). On 8 January 2003 employees of an entity related to the
respondent, Digiland International Ltd ('DIL'), were undergoing a training session at the
respondent's premises. A DIL employee inadvertently loaded contents of the training template
onto the Digiland commerce website, which then automatically and instantaneously initiated the
insertion of similar contents onto all three websites. As a result of the mistake the price of the
laser printer 'HPC 9660A Color Laserjet 4600' was advertised at the wrong price of $66. The
actual price was $3,854. All six appellants were graduates conversant with the usage of the
internet and its practices, and endowed with more than an adequate understanding of business
and commercial practices. There were various communications between the six appellants on 13
January 2003, including a comment from a third party to the first appellant that he thought the
Page | 54
price of the printers was the 'wrong posted price'. In the early hours of 13 January 2003 the six
appellants placed orders over the internet for 1,606 of the printers. Confirmation notes were
automatically despatched to the appellants through e-mail. When the respondent learnt of the
error the advertisement was promptly removed from the websites and the appellants, as well as
778 other buyers of the printers, were informed that the price posting was an error and that the
respondents would not be meeting the orders. The appellants collectively and individually
maintained that while they thought the price of $66 was a good deal, they did not think that the
website prices had been mistakenly placed or inserted. The appellants brought legal proceedings
seeking enforcement of the contracts. It was submitted on behalf
 1 LRC 37 at 38
of the appellants that the contract was binding and one which the respondent was obliged to
honour. The High Court dismissed the action, holding that the contracts were void because the
appellants had actual, or alternatively constructive, knowledge of the respondent's mistake. The
appellants appealed to the Court of Appeal. The main issue in the proceedings was the level of
knowledge possessed and/or belief entertained by each of the appellants when they entered into
each of the transactions for the purchase of the laser printers. The appellants also contended that
the High Court had erred in awarding the respondent the full costs of the trial as there were
several issues at trial on which the respondent had not succeeded.
HELD: Appeal dismissed. Costs order set aside and order for reduced amount of costs

1b.2. McRae v Commonwealth Disposals Commission (1950) 84 CLR 377
Facts: The defendants sold an oil tanker described as lying on Jourmand Reef off Papua. The
plaintiffs incurred considerable expenditure in sending a salvage expedition to look for the
tanker. There was in fact no oil tanker, nor any place known as Jourmand Reef. The plaintiffs
brought an action for (1) breach of contract, (2) deceit, and (3) negligence.
Decision: The trial judge gave judgment for the plaintiffs in the action for deceit. He held
that Couturier v Hastie obliged him to hold that the contract of sale was void and the claim for
breach of contract failed. Both parties appealed.
The High Court of Australia stated that it was not decided in Couturier v Hastie that the contract
in that case was void. The question whether it was void or not did not arise. If it had arisen, as in
an action by the purchaser for damages, it would have turned on the ulterior question whether the
contract was subject to an implied condition precedent. In the present case, there was a contract,
and the Commission contracted that a tanker existed in the position specified. Since there was no
such tanker, there had been a breach of contract, and the plaintiffs were entitled to damages for
1b.2 Taylor v Johnson (1983)
Fact Plaintiff and Defendants are both horse breeders. Plaintiff and Defendant entered in an
agreement to breed Plaintiff’s mares with Defendant’s Stallion. Defendant then sold the stallion
and shipped it to Kentucky. Plaintiff and Defendant made several attempts to breed the mares
Page | 56
with the stallion but the breeding never came to pass.
Decision For there to be anticipatory breach as a matter of law, one party must state, clearly, that
they will not perform the contract or make such performance impossible, not, merely, difficult.
1b.3 Leaf v International Galleries  2 KB 86
Fact: The claimant purchased a painting from the defendant. Both parties believed that the
painting was by the artist Constable. In fact 5 years later the claimant discovered the painting
was not a Constable. The claimant brought an action based both on misrepresentation and
The claim based on misrepresentation was successful however, since it was an innocent
misrepresentation, the claimant had lost the right to rescind the contract through lapse of time.
With innocent misrep the time starts to run from the date of the contract not the date of
Decision: The claim based on mistake was unsuccessful as the mistake related to the quality and
did not render the subject matter something essentially different from that which it was believed
to be. He believed he was buying a painting and he got a painting.
