Moral issues can be solved by applying game theory. Before you create
a new entity, determine its payoff function. This will tell you how
it will behave, if it will cooperate or not. Examine your own payoff
function, and you'll see if you benifit or not. Perhaps the problem
is more how to choose the most morally correct entities given the
existing technology.
