Thinking about robots

Nothing brings in the holiday season like the lighting of Abe Vigoda.

John Young: yeah, i was thinking about robots today in one of my classes
John Young: do you think if a robot attacked someone it would be charged with a crime?
Michael Wyszomierski: nah its owner would. it's not a legal entity like an individual or a corporation, so i dont think it could legally be charged
John Young: assuming the robot was artifically intellegent
Michael Wyszomierski: hmm i'll have to consult that episode of star trek where they determine whether or not Data is starfleet property
