In the question asked by Jim2B regarding the legal personhood of uploaded personalities, my answer came to the conclusion that uploaded personalities of people would be regarded as children of the uploaded person (until they could support themselves).
Several disturbing thoughts come to me when thinking about this. Namely digital-rape and digital-retardation. An uploaded personality of someone could be spawned without their consent and/or an uploaded personality could be malformed. There is no possibility for a digital-abortion, as it were, the uploaded personality is immediately a fully aware digital person. The question of either deleting this entity or adjusting "mistakes" made in this person would be incredibly difficult to answer.
Focusing on the second thought: if society recognized uploaded personalities as legal people, would the law also prevent the repair of copy "mistakes" that led to an intellectual disability of the uploaded personality?
