@leo25 I was just about to delete that bit of my post because it goes off tangent from what I consider the point is ie how contracts protect property rights. But I guess I’ll have to leave it in. But it does raise another question I just thought of. Is corporate reputation a property right? Certainly the right to hire/fire is. In other words, can anyone - individual or business- rightly own and by default rightly defend their reputation in the market place? Or is reputation just some abstract concept in the same way as ideas are. I’m sure this has been argued about by Libertarians at some point.
