Default Re: Why Germany Matters

Well, with all the talk of SAI rights and bioroid reproduction, one obvious conflict is over xoxing rights.

Also, I just realized there's a middle ground. Free private xoxing may be illegal, for legal or suffrage or wage collapse reasons. But what about licensed xoxing, a set quota of informorph population growth, like immigration quotas? Or (also licensed) xoxing-with-personality-modification, to increase the number of skilled citizens and take some advantage of copying, without an explosion of sameness? And obviously such a state might bend the rules for an informorph with *urgently needed* skills, like loyal Arabic or Pashtun translators today.

Which would spark international fears of a "race to the bottom", and more and more xoxing...
