At the moment, too stupid to set up a DNS server.

  • Slashdot | Open-Source Prosthetics - It's good to see that people who have suffered a traumatic loss will have more options available to them. No part of anyone's body should belong to anyone else, including the intellectual property rights.

Watch as these get banned for "public-health" reasons.

Technically, parts of some peoples' bodies (although a tiny number) already belong to others. For example, if someone has a retroviral change intheir cells that was developed by Monsanto, that part of their cells belongs to Monsanto and it is illegal for them to replicate it.

I like the idea, but I'm hoping never to need one.

Can I assume that you support voluntary euthanasia, if no part of somone's body should be owned by anyone else?

phay_lus: Unfortunately, you may be right about it getting banned... especially once there's big money in proprietary prosthetics.

coriolinus: Yes, I do support it.
