Would you still be you?
Imagine that a teleportation machine has been designed that can successfully scan exactly what you physically are and reorganize matter as an exact replica of you somewhere else. Then the machine simultaneously deletes the old copy (aka you). Is this new living, breathing, thinking copy of you now you? What are the legal, moral, ethical, ramifications of being copied? If each time this process took place you willed all of your rights, property, etc. to the copy would it matter that it was not you since the copy would know exactly what you knew only moments before?
You would technically die, right?
