Do you own your clone?

Postby Urwrongx1000 » Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:02 pm

A guy is walking down the street, spits on the ground, keeps walking.

A scientist walks up, siphons the spit into a small container, takes it to his lab, and produces a clone of the guy.

The scientist claims to own the genetic data, and the cloned person of the guy. Furthermore the scientist posts the genetic codes into a public domain for other scientists to use and manipulate for research. The guy's genetics will be tampered with and manipulated how they see fit.


What say you? Who owns what and why?

Only people in a free society own anything.

The Wise gather together to help one another in EVERY aspect of living.

You are always more insecure than you think, just not by what you think.
The only absolute certainty is formed by the absolute lack of alternatives.
It is not merely "do what works", but "to accomplish what purpose in what time frame at what cost".
As long as the authority is secretive, the population will be subjugated.

Amid the lack of certainty, put faith in the wiser to believe.

Supposing a world of ownership of clones

i would rather own someone else's clone

But I think this would not be the ideal
formerly incorrect
formally

in a cloned age genetic data would be bought and sold.

people would not often be cloned without their consent, and thus the spitting man could sue the scientists for using his image without permission.
