Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an analysis of the validity of contracts concerning the transfer of goods of a sexual nature brings us to a question that can be considered paramount, that is, the ownership of such entities and the possibility to assert property rights over them. There is probably a disincentive to apply for IP protection when one does not know in advance whether the request will be accepted or refused and might result in a lower growth rate, especially in the field of patentable inventions, with a very low level of innovation, widespread imitation of goods and practically no brand value. Conclusively, property rights over both tangibles and intangibles are not immune from aversion towards sex. This is not surprising as one could expect that concern over the morality of juridical acts is addressed to all the various aspects, and not only towards contracts.
