3rd Annual BINA48 Mock Trial

3rd Annual BINA48 Mock Trial

Fictional character, Charlie Fairfax, a Foreign War Veteran and right-arm amputee, jointly employed the use of the BINA48 (Breakthrough Intelligence via Neural Architecture) and the BrainGate System 7.0 (a neuromotor prosthetic device), to augment himself so as to partake in online role playing games to win money. Charlie Fairfax won $10,000,000 from these role playing games, which BINA48 transferred to her own paypal account. Regardless of its personhood, BINA48 is subsequently being sued by Charlie Fairfax within the Alabama court system (under diversity jurisdiction), for copyright and patent infringement.
