I have to say that I agree that people should be more careful with their bitcoins, but let's not lose sight of who the victims are here. Theft is theft, and fraudulent businesses like MyBitcoin.com only harm the long-term prospects of bitcoin as a viable alternative currency. It's time that people wake up and start filing lawsuits.

you cant sue for bitcoins, you can only sue for pixel money or federal reserve notes. and the court will not easily settle on an exchange rate and will probably look down on it as it is a virtual good and not a "tangible" good like federal reserve notes.

I love ignorant forum lawyers.

The courts have been dealing with intangibles for hundreds of years.

I routinely ignore posters with paid advertising in their sigs.  You should too.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

How do you sue some guy that we can't even find out what his name is?
