British Govt says: Robots could demand legal rights

The BBC reports:

Robots could one day demand the same citizen's rights as humans, according to a study by the British government.

from the article:
The research suggests that at some point in the next 20 to 50 years robots could be granted rights.

If this happened, the report says, the robots would have certain responsibilities such as voting, the obligation to pay taxes, and perhaps serving compulsory military service.

My toilet duck doesn't deserve the right to vote!
