Human copyright

An absurd argument in the feminism thread sparked me to create this thread.



Do you believe that humans have a sort of 'copyright' to their unique genetic make-up? That is, when we become capable of human cloning, do you believe that a person should have the ultimate authority as to whether or not they are cloned? Why or why not?

Why would there be a scenario where you're being cloned against your will?

The best thing to do is send yourself sperm samples in the mail. You need to prove authorship, after all.

Imagine a store full of genetic bottles of celebrities that people could go into to buy the appearance of their children. The scenario isn't important, though. It's a question about rights.

It's like if you really don't want to be cloned but someone really wants to clone you anyway. What if you're like Morgan Freeman and somebody wants to make a clone of you so that they can have the clone narrate their whole life, but you don't want to have clones made because then the clones might try to pose as you when they're not the real you?

yeah like lattes said, if someone was making money off yr image then that's dumb, but if they're not making money i think it should be fair game. like if i had the infrastructure to clone, i should be able to clone whoever i want (hypothetically).

I'd be okay with being cloned if they weren't doing anything ****ed up like harvesting my clone's organs.

That's not the question though. If I were to steal a hair follicle or something from you and clone you, would you view that as a violation?

Anyone that says no is lying.

Oh I see.

So is the problem that you're taking away opportunities of employment for attractive people?
