Biomodvert, Biomadvert
A biomodified life form hybridised with a madvert.

This neogen will do anything to convince you to try its particular genmod, and sometimes will cunningly inject or infect an unsuspecting biont with its genmod. Most biomodverts are subsapient, but some are fully sapient, and a few of these are superbright. Their legal status differs from polity to polity - in some regions they have all sentient rights, in others they considered vermin, and in others again they are de-genmodised but otherwise allowed to exist as harmless nuisances.

    Subliminal memebot broadcast devices, scattered them around a designated area, they release a message into the brain of everyone in the area, usually an advertisement. Banned throughout much of the Civilized Galaxy, they are widely used in market state free zones such as the NoCoZo, and out towards the Periphery where the reach of the noetic and other big ai states is not very strong.

    A society formed by the obsessive postneogen cyborg Durant Durang for the liberation of Madverts. To date they have (by means of smart ai viruses, specially customized godseeds, or other means) freed several tens of trillions madverts. On some NoCoZo polities like Atlantis it is perfectly legal to kill a member of the Free Madvert League, even one that doesn't have any recent copies.

    Madverts that have been released of their corporate programming. While no longer compelled to sell the products of their original company, they are frequently unable to break through to a broader state of existence. Most end up joining religious sects that require strict devotion and little independent thought. They are widely seen as a pest of only somewhat better (or sometimes worse) standing than slaved madverts.
