An owner of goods enjoying the full rights of ownership has de facto possession, or use and enjoyment1. Conversely, possession is prima facie evidence of title2.
The right to have legal and de facto possession is a normal but not necessary incident of ownership3. Such a right may exist with, or apart from, de facto or legal possession, and in different persons at the same time in virtue of different proprietary rights4. Thus, when an owner has been wrongfully dispossessed of his goods by theft, or has lost them, he retains the right to possess them
