What's my incentive for checking for doublespending?  I know if everyone stopped the system fails, but, I'm best off if I can participate in the system while cheating by not performing this check since it consumes my resources.  If I understand this correctly, the only thing currently preventing me form cheating (besides lack of technical skill) is my own internal since of fairness & social good.  Is this correct?

If you include a double-spent transaction in a block you generate, then that block will be rejected and you don't get your 50BTC reward.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
