Richard Epstein, for example, suggests that were blackmail to be legalized, it would encourage the formation of corporations such as his hypothetical "Blackmail Inc.," an organization devoted to ferreting out embarrassing (or worse) information on people and then blackmailing
them to have it kept quiet.(25) Assuming the profitability of such an enterprise, a blackmailee might find himself the target of numerous independent approaches and, to meet the financial obligations incurred by this, might be led (or even encouraged) into committing crimes to pay for his chronic secrecy need.
Even if we were to assume, contrary to the claim of Part I.A, that legalizing blackmail would increase the expected cost of violating norms, legalization would still probably inhibit norm reform.(70) By this contrary hypothesis, the net effect of blackmail on criticism would depend on the sum of two offsetting effects: (1) legalization would increase the expected cost of violating norms and therefore increase the benefit of reforming inefficient norms; and (2) legalization would create expected profits from blackmailing
norm violators and therefore create costs to reforming even inefficient norms.
