Default Re: Crime and Punishment for AIs

If it is a serial killer who is hoping bodies, it does not really need to have server time. In fact, a criminal AI could easily maintain several backup copies in blind accounts in other jurisdictions that would be uploaded after a certain amount of downtime. You could have criminal AIs reappearing every year, with the authorities playing whack-a-mole as they attempt to deal with each reappearance.

A primary threat would be the ghost of a serial killer. With the potential to make massive numbers of copies, a serial killer could easily create dozens of simultaneous instances that would commit horrific crimes in dozens of jurisdictions at the same time. You could even have serial killers 'breed' through transforming their victims into bioshells for new copies, who would then go on to find their own victims so that they could 'breed'.
