If You Owned a Robot

Assume that you purchased an expensive robot that is a close replica of a human being. It can handle very complex tasks. There is no other robot that is quite the same; it is indeed unique.

Would you protect it from abuse, treat it courteously, and make sure that it is well maintained?

Would it receive better treatment than some of its human coworkers?
