As a living card game, Android: Netrunner is played with decks of cards. Each card has its own title, text defining its abilities, and stats, generally depending on the type of card that it is.
If a card's text has its own title in it, that title refers to that specific copy of the card and not to any other copy of the card, except where otherwise noted.
|Page 21, Column 2, Paragraph(s) 9, Core Rule Book|
|Unless otherwise noted, a card with text that refers to its own card title only refers to itself and does not refer to other copies of cards with that title.|
Cards do not retain memory of their previous states if uninstalled and reinstalled. Each time any copy of a card becomes active, it is considered to be a new instance of that card.

|Whenever a card is uninstalled, there is no memory of its previous state and it is considered to be a new copy of the card.|
