I forgot who first coined the term. You see, nanobots are so small that it can tresspass almost anything and even get through our body without detection. And I dont think they can read "do not step on the grass" or "beware of the dog" kept hanging on my fence. If they enter my property, that's "breaking and entering" according to the current law. If they enter my body, my, that could amount to violence, immoral activity and certainly a violation of privacy.
A way out of this is creating Nanospaces. An exclusion from the law for the nanites to walk anywhere they want, certainly, subject to certain rights and obligations. The rights and obligations can only be imposed, of course, to a legal entity i.e. owners of the nanites, which could mean humans or corporations.
Hmm, if you have any idea on what rights and obligations of the nano-owner's should be, let me know.
