Wow that's quite a list of potentially new rules and regulations to be added to the ones we already have.

Makes me think of this from Black's 8th edition:

"So far as legal theory is concerned, a person is any being whom the law regards as capable of rights and duties. Any being that is so capable is a person, wether a human being or not, and no being that is not so capable is a person, even though he be a man. Persons are the substances of which rights and duties are the attributes. It is only in this respect that persons possess juridical significance, and this is the exclusive point of view from which personality receives legal recognition)".

Well i may be capable of rights, but duties under such a system? all written in a foreign language(legalese)??? I think i could safely bet that there is'nt a single being on the whole planet that's read them all.
You'd have to be insane to claim to be capable of duties under such a system.

So maybe i'm not a person after all.
