I would rather talk of duplicates and backups, not clones.
A backup I would not regard as having rights, but if activated
(i.e. now a freewilled duplicate of me, diverging from some
point in my past) then I would wish it to have the same rights
as myself.  Whether society will take the same view is
another matter.
