Passing on the right allowed in certain situations

Recently, while driving with a friend on Route 11 on the west side of Potsdam, where there are four lanes, I was just passing a slower driver that was driving in the left lane when he/she started to move into my lane. A timely blast of my horn discouraged that driver from the intended manoeuver, but one of my passengers asked me why I was passing on the right. I explained to him that it is proper to pass on the right when there are two lanes in each direction. But, the incident reminded me that I had not addressed this issue since 2007, and perhaps it's time to review the situations that passing on the right is permissible.
