If this was Bitcoin, the media headline would read: "Ethereum community divided and at war"

Copyright attorneys from multi billion dollar companies have a hard enough time chasing down people for copyright infringement and recovering losses, good luck convincing a judge (in some random country) that a blockchain, that wasn't even supposed to exist was manipulated by people across the world. How are you going to target all these people in different countries, and more importantly, do you have a $10M bankroll to pay attorneys to do that? Furthermore, how would you force repayment? This is cryptocurrency we're talking about not FIAT bank accounts. My guess is more likely that a discreet miner could make millions by shorting and no one would be the wiser. In some jurisdictions, this could even be considered legal. The risk of a 51% attack has been known from the beginning.
