         Subject: comments on ethical & legal issues of simulation?

I have recently completed a paper entitled "Historical Simulations -
Motivational, Ethical and Legal Issues" that appears in the August,
2006 issue of the Journal of Futures Studies. It is available on SSRN
at http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=929327

The paper discusses the ethical and legal issues of using completely
realistic, fine-grained simulations around the mid-21st century for
reflective nostalgia, historical research, testing new forms of
artificial intelligence, and backing-up civilization in perilous times.

Any comments would be welcome.
