Profits à Prendre

  • Entitlement to take what appears to belong to your neighbour and to treat it as your own.
  • This is restricted to things like overhanging fruit from a fruit tree which encroaches upon your land.
  • The neighbour cannot complain that you help yourself to their apples because they have encroached upon your air space above your side of the fence!
