Synopsis: Matter transmission is commonplace. All travel is done by it and the same technology is used to create backups of people and even copies which perform duties the original doesn't have time for (the experiences can't be combined so the consciousness is essentially saved for both copies). A lawyer gets an unusual case. His school time friend has created a copy from an old backup, and that copy doesn't want to be assimilated as the personalities have grown too different. Do both of them have a right to live?
