I can't help but think that these rules are a bit outdated when I read them. Consider this: What is the real consequence of the second law? Slavery. In our society, where we strive to give everyone human rights, that law seems wrong to me. Especially when you take into account that robots will presumedly someday be able to reproduce, when they can be called a race of their own. Imagine being an intelligent robot. You would virtually be without rights. Also, a robot would be unable to defend itself in the cause of a human attacking it.
