I'm trying to flesh out homebrew introductory scenarios by playing up simple ethical situations that should have existing cases on the books. Right now I'm focusing on the LLA but I suspect these laws would be the same for all of the inner system.
Situation: Person A trades an alpha fork of their self to Person B as payment for some good or service. Person A later regrets situation and reports Person B for fork napping or some related crime.
How would this situation play out in the legal system if Person B is apprehended?
Assuming Person B could prove the trade was made willingly, I'm of the mind both Person A and Person B would be charged as (I would imagine) there would probably be laws specifically about trading forks/egos, even if they're your own. On the other hand, Person A willing traded a fork of their self. I could just as easily see the ideology of 'your ego, your choice' being prevalent, but there's also the four hour limit on alpha forks that's enforced in the inner system.
I've also considered having a law that states that you cannot legally possess a fork of an ego outside of your own unless you have an ego bank license or you are the legal guardian of said ego. Would that seem reasonable for the LLA?
What do you think an existing law to handle this scenario would look like?
