So if it's not the prosecutor, which part of the system do you think is broken?
The whole damn thing.
Also, even in the maximalist US, Copyright isn't property. You don't pay property tax on it.

As a mining system/wealth distribution system, sure. But mining on bitcoin is pretty much completely insignificant compared to the rest of its uses these days. It is the trade value, not the storage value, where the interestingness of bitcoin truly lies.
Why do you expect the prosecutor not to prosecute him under the law when he clearly violated the law?
The whole point of this thread is not that the prosecutor shouldn't have, but that the system is broken if it causes this situation to arise in the first place, which it has, dozens of times if not more.
Watson will be able to outpace us in this area, someday, too. All it needs is to marry Siri or Google and all our motivations and social bonds become compromised to it.
Really, under any sane interpretation of north american politics, Toronto *is* under the sphere of influence, militarily(wasn't US force used during G20?), culturally(American TV & movies, etc) and so on of the centres of power in the US. For all intents other than taxes and other relatively insignificant matters, Watson was *right*.

Way to completely miss his point. Of course you can. It's not about whether an individual is naturally immune to Tuberculosis or not, it's whether the herd is. There is value in a highly educated society that emerges only when you've got enough of them. When your friends and family aren't killing themselves over the latest suicide cult because they have enough education to understand the earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, you're better off.
