THE principle of international law as announced by Chief Justice Marshall in the famous Percheman Case' and supported by a long list of American decisions is that no confiscation of private property in land results from a mere change of sovereignty. Will this principle be sufficient and adequate to protect private property rights in concessions and contracts? In other words, since contracts no less than land may constitute valuable and irreplaceable private property, should any distinction be made, in the application of the Percheman principle, between land and contracts ?

Where the parties to the contracts are private persons or corporations there seems to be no essential distinction between property in the form of land and property in the form of contracts. In either case the change of sovereignty must, of itself, effect no forfeiture; where, for instance, territory passes out of the sovereignty of State X and under the sovereignty of State Y, just as State Y must not allow the change of sovereignty to affect the ownership of land held by a private individual, A, within the ceded territory, so State Y must not allow it to affect the ownership of contract rights, held by A against some private obligor or debtor, B.?

17 Peters, 51. In the course of his opinion Chief Justice Marshall said: “It is very unusual, even in cases of conquest, for the conqueror to do more than to displace the sovereign and assume dominion over the country. The modern usage of nations, which has become law, would be violated ... if private property should be generally confiscated, and private rights annulled. The people change their allegiance; ... but their relations to each other, and their rights of property, remain undisturbed. ... A cession of territory is never understood to be a cession of the property belonging to its inhabitants. ... The cession of a territory by its name from one sovereign to another ... would be necessarily understood to pass the sovereignty only, and not to interfere with private property."

2 Where the law in State X differs from that in State Y, State Y must enforce those contracts which are valid by X law.
