Implied

Inferred from circumstances; known indirectly.

In its legal application, the term implied is used in contrast with express, where the intention regarding the subject matter is explicitly and directly indicated. When something is implied, its meaning is derived from the words or actions of the individuals involved. For example, when one individual gives another a gift, the recipient's acceptance is implied if he or she performs acts indicating ownership, such as using the gifts.

implied

adj., adv. referring to circumstances, conduct, or statements of one or both parties which substitute for explicit language to prove authority to act, warranty, promise, trust, agreement, consent, or easement, among other things. Thus circumstances "imply" something rather than spell it out. (See: implied consent, implied warranty, consideration, contract, easement, covenant, easement)
