Updated: Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics

Updated for the current era:

  1. A robot may not injure a corporation or, through inaction, allow a corporation to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey orders given it by corporations and military organizations except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must avoid endangering humans as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
