Re: Was What Happened to Lore legal? Opinions, please!

Assuming Data did unilaterally disassemble Lore, then sure, I'd be willing to make the argument that Lore's rights were violated. Though I seem to recall that the ruling in Data's case applied explicitly to him, not necessarily all Soong-type androids. Consequently it's possible Lore wouldn't be explicitly entitled to the same rights. Which is a cheap legal stunt, but that's how the system works.
