TAFKAS suspects that the very mention of Folau in the heading of this post will trigger a number of comments. But with the benefit of time and reflection, TAFKAS believes that he can summarise the Folau matter in 3 points:
- Israel Folau should be free to sign away/sell his speech and expression rights in an enforceable contract.
- Israel Folau should not be required to sign away/sell his speech and expression rights in an enforceable contract.
- There is no role, absolutely no role for Government in regulating whether Folau sells his speech and expression rights in contract and whether any such contract is enforced – except through the provision of Courts to arbitrate whether the contract has or has not been applied correctly.
