Conjecture: The Acts might have been drafted at Cumberland School of Law, Samford University. This law school is located in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. Since a well-known medical research program is also located at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), one could presume by the 24th Century UAB is a leading research university in android technology. The two Birmingham universities likely worked together and the faculty members of Cumberland drafted the Acts to govern the legal rights of androids. - – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk).
