Conversion

Conversion is an intentional interference with another's possession or ownership of property that is significant enough such that the interfering party is required to pay for the property's full value.

Example: Sam borrows Mike's lawnmower but never returns it despite Mike's requests. Sam will be liable to pay damages to Mike under the theory of conversion. Note that this is a civil remedy which differs from any penalty imposed upon Sam under the criminal law of theft.
