“will be left to the military, industry and busy parents instead of international legislative bodies.”
We should hope and pray so. The only thing “international legislative bodies” (read: the un) should do is meet once a year and debate meaningless stuff and do nothing.

Professor Sharkey, writing in the prestigious Science journal, believes that as the use of robots increases, decisions about their application will be left to the military, industry and busy parents instead of international legislative bodies.
UN? ICC? EU?
They've been so valuable protecting the vulnerable in say Darfur.
Whereas a squad of RoboCops might get results.
What's it gonna be, another worthless "resolution" or a titanium crossing guard with a minigun for a right hand.

Indeed, let’s have the UN set establish a committee to set rules for robot-human interaction.
Al Gore can chair it.
