This case really disturbed me. But Nothaus was an easy target. Who will TPTB go after for bitcoin, everyone!?!? I'd like to see that sh!tshow. Anyway, what happens when things are made illegal. Black market emerges and prices skyrocket. So it becomes even more valuable more quickly, and bitcoin, though it wants to be mainstream - and should be!, is tailor made for black market activity. Here's hoping it doesn't come to that, but the early adopters of BTC are ready for it, I'd say.
