Article 01: Post Deconstruction.
“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
"The broad wall of Babylon shall be leveled to the ground, and her high gates shall be burned with fire. The peoples labor for nothing, and the nations weary themselves only for fire."
"It is more blessed to give than to receive."
"For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
"Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident."
"Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering (for He is faithful who promised), and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."
I could probably demonstrate this with a 'perfect image' of you (a photograph you posted in member's lounge), a chainsaw, and you.
Even assuming the image was an absolutely perfect reproduction, you the individual would quite certainly be dead if I showed-up wearing a hockey-mask and repeatedly disemboweled you with a chainsaw.
The 'promise' that those memories won't be altered by loved-ones or that the process will even work at all as promised will be of little consolation when you die. Much like whether or not you managed to have sex before death or not.

"After several men of the company had been blown up by shells, I noticed that a spirit of uneasiness became dominant."-Major Leonard R. Boyd
I don't believe so simply due to the fact you're talking about them managing to get someone's personality from a dead brain, key word being 'dead'
If they were still alive and you could scan them, and the technology was highly accurate, yes.
I chose 'other' because they aren't truly the same person they once were.Truthfully I would still engage in conversation every-now and then, but I would feel as if the person has been cheated out on the main process of life.There has to be an ending to everything eventually and I have accepted that, so this would kinda freak me out in many more way's then one.But I would be happy that they are still here.Yet I would be freaked out by the fact that they are practically a example of the 'Living Dead'.I am pretty much evenly divided on this concept.

If you were my friend, you would know.....
"Take all the time lost, all the day's that I've cost.
Take what I took and give it back to you,
All this time we were waiting for each other,
All this time, I was waiting for you.
All this love we keep wasting on another...
All this time, we were waiting for each other.
Never jumped so Far, never jumped so Far,
To get back where you are.
All this time, we were waiting for each other,
All this time, I was waiting for you......"
This makes sense. I mean, what is the body? Chemical processes and muscles that are fairly equivalent to machines. I personally believe that the individual is in the mind, so to recreate the mind is to recreate the individual. Yes, there are a lot of moral grey zones around this issue. Yes, it could result in multiple versions of one individual and other such problems. But as to the question itself, pure and simple, I say yes; it's the same person.
