Investors own their Bitcoins, not Coinbase! Coinbase must give equal amount of Bitcoin Cash otherwise we should expect Coinbase Bitcoin Cash lawsuit!

Coinbase users just like other platforms have the right to get their Bitcoin Cash due to the hard fork. Thus, denying this right, Coinbase and any other cryptocurrency exchange platform simply open their doors for possible Bitcoin Cash lawsuit.

Bitcoin and other digital assets qualify as property of their owners. Thus, denying investor rights to get their equal amount of Bitcoin Cash is simply contradicting to common law, property laws. Property laws dictate that the product of an asset will also belong to the owner of the original asset.
