Abstract

In previous columns we have discussed the introduction of property rights in disputes over human tissue (Madden and Cockburn 2011; Stewart 2009). One of the major issues that arises from the recognition of property rights relates to how the law should respond to contracts concerning the sale of human tissue. This was recently discussed in St George Fertility Centre Pty Ltd v Clark [2011] NSWSC 1276, where the court adopted a classic approach of sale of goods.

Keywords: sale of sperm, health records, minimally conscious states, duties of candour
