Declaração dos Direitos dos Ciborgues, v1.0

Sim, alguém escreveu uma declaração intitulada “The Cyborg Bill of Rights v1.0”.

E faz sentido. À medida que os nossos corpos forem tendo cada vez mais implantes cibernéticos (por enquanto é só para alguns, mas pensem na quantidade de pacemakers que anda por aí) é importante definir que os mesmos fazem parte do nosso corpo e quais os direitos que temos sobre eles. Se os fabricantes de produtos electrónicos conseguem ter direitos (DRM) sobre dispositivos que temos nas nossas casas, também tentarão ter poder sobre os nossos implantes cibernéticos.
