If I didn't know any better, I'd suspect ... (dut Dut DAAAH) ... sock puppets!

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.

in short
1. if you can prove WHEN the phishing site became actively advertised on google
2. if you can prove WHEN google received a phishing report
3. if you can prove WHEN an IP not belonging to you accessed blockchain.info (reasonable time AFTER 1&2)
4. if you can prove Google ignored the phish report (no removal after reasonable processing time)
5. if you can prove Google made revenue from the phishing advert (profited from illegal activity)
then you have a slim chance against their well versed lawyers
Agreed.

But my question is; did the ad install a keylogger, or did you put your info in?

If you put your own info in, then you're the one at fault.

googles defense is that they cannot be held liable for content of other peoples website
googles defense is that they cannot be held liable for actions of users or the neglect of users.

this means if someone did not see the address bar was not truly spelled correctly. then that is the fault of the user
this means if someone went to a website and done something. whether its hand over funds, hand over log in details, or download a program/virus, its a users fault.

the only defense (weak defense without good lawyer) is that google knew of the thread, had time to deal with the threat, but don nothing to help avoid "the user from making a mistake" - yes thats right its still a user mistake, but google didnt lessen the risk of users being dumb

Unfortunately, I was one of the "stupid people" who got dooped by this. Here is the thread I created at the time for reference:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=531047.0

Agreed, I should've had better security in place, no doubt! Needless to say, I have since changed my practices!  Grin Just out of habit, I Google searched for Blockchain, and not paying any attention at all, proceeded to click the link and enter my credentials. I was in a hurry at the time, and had half a buzz on. When I clicked into send coins, and then clicked into shared coin, I went to paste in the address I was sending to and that's when I noticed most of my coins were gone! I didn't figure out what happened until the next day, and actually figured it out immediately after clicking on the Google searched link. In the address bar there was just an ip instead of what should be there, and I knew right then that I fucked up!

I did email Google and tell them that they owed me $1200 (wishful thinking, LOL! Roll Eyes) and this is what I got back from them for a response:
