Bitcoin copyright registrations filed by Craig Wright don’t really consider him as Satoshi Nakamoto as the reports that we have in our altcoin news today show us.
The copyright claims for the bitcoin whitepaper and the code for the number one cryptocurrencies filed with the United States Copyright Office didn’t get the satisfaction for Wright as he hoped for. Initially, Wright filed the bitcoin copyright registrations under the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. What is interesting is that the US officials got some confirmation that Wright was really Satoshi Nakamoto but the crypto community didn’t agree.
A spokesperson for the self-proclaimed bitcoin creator stated that ‘’the registrations issued by the US Copyright Office recognize Wright as the author under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto- of both the white paper and the code.’’
However, the claim has no impact in reality since the Copyright office when receiving an application for registration, does not go into the origins and truths of the statement made in the application. The Office even stated:
“In a case in which a work is registered under a pseudonym, the Copyright Office does not investigate whether there is a provable connection between the claimant and the pseudonymous author.”
Also, as mentioned in the latest cryptocurrency news, by registering the source code for bitcoin does not mean that you protect the intellectual property for the largest cryptocurrency as an invention. The Copyright office can also cancel the registration application if it finds that the gathered information is a false claim. The office can also deny the application if it finds out that the person who claims to be an author of a piece of work is not the real identity of who they claim to be.
Over the past few weeks, a scandal around Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) which is the altcoin backed by Wright himself, got the creator in the eye of the international community when the crypto exchanges around the world started delisting his coin when he went after everyone who said that he is not the real Satoshi Nakamoto.
Wright went after the crypto user Hodlonaut after he called him a fraud and he stated that he is not the real creator of bitcoin. Wright sued the crypto user and this is when the entire crypto community showed their solidarity with Hodlonaut.
