    <div>Yeah, have fun...<br>

      Have fun trying to keep track of who's behind the IP in each
      transaction... have fun trying to "regulate" a peer-to-peer
      network with no central authority. Downloading copyrighted
      material using bittorrent has been deemed illegal and has been
      "regulated" by various authorities... does it still happen? Do the
      authorities know exactly how often this happens, from where,
      to/from whom?<br>
      <br>
      The usual political fear mongering won't work. I think what's
      happening is that governments are starting to wrap their heads
      around this gigantic problem -- "how the hell are we going to
      continue business as usual if this really takes off worldwide?" <br>
      <br>
      This guy quoted on the cnbc article has the right idea, but he's
      thinking about it in the wrong direction : "If the euro does go
      belly up the German authorities could potentially still collect
      tax if everyone started using the bitcoin - that's a good example
      of German forward-thinking!" -- <a href="http://www.cnbc.com/id/100971898" target="_blank">http://www.cnbc.com/id/100971898</a> .
      If the Euro goes "belly up" nobody is going to give a shit about
      German taxes. They're going to dump their Euro money, as fast as
      possible, to bitcoin and another forms of money. Think Cyprus
      crisis v2.0 on an exponential scale.<br>
