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 (talk).

I moved this here since it is, as labeled, conjecture. - Archduk3 16:57, February 12, 2010 (UTC)
