Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications

Before we investigate the ethical, legal, and social implications of digital immortality, we should examine its five dimensions: Data (copyright), Access (the computer gap), Interaction (Artificial Intelligence), Presentation (broadband vs. modem), and Time (media obsolescence, e.g., browsers).

Click here for a discussion of the Social, Economic, and Ethical Questions of Digital Immortality as presented in a 2002 paper.

A more recent discussion has been stimulated by Dr. Ian Pearson's predictions in The Observer of Sunday May 22, 2005.
