Exactly. As you know, it's called moral hazard

Just the same way with protection of property. If people think they can make any absurd property claim and socialize the cost onto society, like patent trolls for example, they will do so.

Similarly in a free society if someone draws a rectangle around some land on a map and makes an ownership claim, it will go exactly nowhere. Drawing lines on maps and claiming ownership dies when you have to enforce those claims yourself.
