Liam Kemp's 3D animation

I've become a fan of Liam Kemp's skills. He's creating some of the most realistic 3D face renderings I've ever seen. We're very close to passing the point where digital images are indistinguishable from real world images. Here's a clip of his work.

Very nice. Animation. Psychologically we respond to these creations the same as if they were real life images. What are the implications for viewing and controlling the behaviour of extremely realistic 3D avatars? Should there be a code of conduct for avatar behaviour when we set animated characters to roam the 3D world on there own? If an AI controlled bot is inappropriate to a human controlled bot should the AI bot be chastised for his actions just as the human controlled avatar might?

Please take the time to check out this animated movie from Liam in 2002 in two parts. It's a tear jerker that's extremely moving.
