Rights for Robots

Robot

 The BBC news web site quotes a government report that robots may some day need to be given human rights. Sounds crazy at first hearing, but if a robot were to pass the Turing Test for ‘lifelike’ behaviour, how would you fail to grant such rights? Of course, given rights they will have to accept responsibilities, such as the payment of taxes!
