Of more immediate interest is, if Bitcoin is deemed to be under quasi-legal status, whether the various thefts would be subject to more active official investigation
"Go on down to the station and I'm sure they'll be happy to take your report."
I've got nothing to report. As far as I'm concerned, having enough BTC stolen to worry about it means one is borderline retarded from the standpoint of understanding computers and financial matters, or it means that one is just lazy. But most people are borderline retarded in some combination of these areas which is why I don't think that most people should
mess around with Bitcoin at this time.
On the other hand, a lot of the thefts are probably pretty easy to solve with appropriate forensics. A thief would have to be both a computer and financial genius to get away with things (and cash out) if anyone were paying attention. What I think would be fantastic would be if sometime before the statute of limitations is up, it becomes a really big deal to steal Bitcoin and very significant punishment is dished out. It would be very satisfying to me if 'Tom Williams' found himself in one of Canada's most unpleasant prisons because he got a little greedy and hurried trying to cash out to early. And after having gone through a period of thinking he got away with it.
