Of course, less radical versions of self-ownership can be constructed by varying the package of incidents. One example, a self-ownership which does not include the right to bequeath the product of one's own activities, has been mentioned above. Another possibility is a self-ownership that includes the incidents of full liberal ownership except for the right to exploit one's talents by selling their use to the highest bidder.

39 And in a striking repetition H. L. A. 42 Despite the vintage and contemporary standing of the principle of self-ownership, it is, I believe, a serious error to identify right-holding with ownership. Right-holding revolves round the importance of certain moral capacities to frame and execute one's own plan of life. It is related to being in command of one's own life and so with the idea of being a master or dominus which, historically, goes with being the overlord of property. But the identification of dominion and ownership is contingent.

But however small the extent of claims on my services arising from the exercise of my talents, other than claims I have freely contracted, the result is that I am to that extent in the power of others. Although they cannot conscript my labour, they can stop me charging what the market will bear for my services (by placing a proportional tax on earnings or by some more direct interference with market mechanisms) and in that way give me no alternative but to labour for them if I labour for myself.
