I have been thinking about how disputes can been solved on this forum and would like to present the following idea.

We could have a bitcoin court that operates in the same way as in the real world.

For example if two parties decide on using a trusted member of this forum as an escrow and a dispute regarding payment arises.

A court is held by starting a new thread, the judge and jury is selected at random. If either party has good cause, they can reject a particular judge or jury member.

Prosecution and defense can speak for them selves or select someone else to represent them.

Once all the evidence has been heard from both parties. The jury decides by PMing there vote to the judge and the escrow is informed which party is to receive the funds. In the case of a split decision fund can be split 50%.

The court would only work if the admin of BitconTalk were willing to ban members from posting in the thread, if they are found in contempt. The ban would last the duration of the proceedings.

Please discuss.

Those two sentences are badly contradictory.

In the 'real world' only zero or one party needs to agree.

Maybe some resolutions could be done here, but trying to mimic old systems will disappoint everyone. People who want something new and better won't care about it and people who want the same coercive style won't be able to get it here.

It doesn't have to work exactly as my first post specified, but I do think some common form of dispute resolution would be a good thing for the bitcoin community.

I agree, just read my blog post about this here. Basically, everyone only does serious business with people that all have contracts with reputable arb firms. Then the arb firms contract between themselves. If you disagree with your arb firm's decision, then you're effectively blacklisted.

Law and order, without force or government.

Read your blog and sounds like we are talking about the same thing, but what's an 'arb firm'?

So your saying there can be a number of dispute resolution services that operate in different ways. Market forces will cause them to be competitive and provide the best service.

So I guess anyone offering a dispute resolution package should post it in the services section.
