The AIs are part of Magellan society and are even regarded as essential for the good performance of the government.

Any rise in some sentience is seen as an important event in the life and such AIs are accepted as citizens.

Due to their culture of uniqueness of body and mind (see section below), a sentient AI or beyond can not be cloned. But it remains legally possible for this kind of AI to be able to create a new artificial being according to a method of mitosis by quantum chaos.

Any cloned AI, and the corresponding AI source, are usually tracked down and destroyed by the authorities.
