In particular, fraud and breach of contract do not necessarily involve damage. But they do involve wrongful physical possession of property. I've never thought about this like this before but I'm leaning toward: it involves damage or potential damage. The key point being the effect and or the potential effect. If there is no potential damage or harm, it can't be something to defend against. There is no need to avoid it or prevent another from "doing" it i.e. having a right to prevent it.
