I think something you guys haven't considered is that Blizzard keeps detailed tracking information about pretty much everything your character does, in case the information is needed (IE, you deleted an item, you weren't able to loot an item, etc.). Consider this: They could just run a sniffer that detects GOLD LOOT from bosses. "X received 12 gold 2s 16c from Princess Huhuran" or something like that.Would make the burden of proof infinately easier on the devs for determining who was present (and contributing) during boss kills.Of course, this wouldn't be applicable for world events, but for 99% of the game's content, there's your answer.

No way does Blizzard keep that sort of detailed logs. The storage requirements would be insane. The only think we know for sure they track is completed quests, they might however track boss kills.Blizzard claims they can't tell what loot dropped for a raid when you get a loot bug. Or that they can't restore stolen gold when you get account hacked. So there is no way they are accurately tracking and linking your gold income and expenditure.
