Burrows argues that characterising such cases as compensatory on the basis of the loss of an opportunity to apply for an injunction fails for similar reasons: Burrows, ibid 171–72, referring to the reasons of Gabriel Moss QC in Tamares.

His concept of substitutive compensation for a lost right is tied inextricably to property rights and the use value of those rights, not to a contractual right to performance. 53 The claimant has not lost a right: she retains the same rights she had before the wrong was committed. 55 46 Penarth Dock Engineering Co Ltd v Pounds [1963] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 359; Swordheath Properties Ltd v Tabet [1979] 1 WLR 285 (CA); Ministry of Defence v Ashman [1993] 2 EGLR 102 (CA); Ministry of Defence v Thompson [1993] 2 EGLR 107 (CA); Inverugie Investments Ltd v Hackett [1995] 1 WLR 713 (PC); Gondal v Dillon Newsagents Ltd [2001] RLR 221, [1998] EWCA Civ 1324 (CA).

Stripping defendants of their profit when they breach a contract in certain circumstances is a ‘nudge’25 to encourage parties to either perform their obligations or negotiate a release from the contract. If compensatory damages are inadequate to protect the claimant’s performance interest and disgorgement damages are not awarded, a defend­ ant has nothing to stop him from deliberately breaching a contract and leaving the claimant without a substitute performance. However, if profits are stripped from a defendant, there is no longer any incentive on the part of that defendant or other defendants to breach a contract in the future, at least without entering into negotiations with the claimant first.
