Satoshi Nakamoto’s White Paper Copyright Generates Controversy In the Crypto Community

Craig Wright decision to register Bitcoin’s white paper copyright is already affecting some companies. CoinDesk informed that Scribd has pulled down their copy of the famous and popular Bitcoin’s white paper.

  • CoinDesk had problems with Scribd regarding their copy of Bitcoin’s white paper
  • Craig Wright is taking legal actions against those claiming he is not Satoshi
    Craig Wright has recently registered the copyright of Bitcoin’s white paper that was written by Satoshi Nakamoto. And indeed, this is already creating some issues in the industry. According to CoinDesk, Scribd, a service that posts downloadable content on the Internet, said that their copy of the Satoshi Nakamoto white paper has already been pulled down.

Satoshi's White Paper And Copyright Controversy

As CoinDesk explains, although Wright registered the copyright for the white paper, systems such as BookID rely on the US copyright database. That means that copies of the paper are going to be shut down.

However, CoinDesk mentioned that they also have uploaded a copy of Satoshi’s white paper to their services and that it will always be up until their servers “melt down.” Indeed, if the document cannot be accessed by users, the ecosystem will clearly be affected in a negative way.

CoinDesk has also decided to send a response to Scribd’s BookID regarding Bitcoin’s white paper. About it, Jason Bentley, Legal Operations Manager at Scribd, wrote that their system misidentified their content as infringing. This is why they have decided to restore the content and metrics.

Craig Wright, who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, is working in order to go behind users that claim he is not Satoshi. Moreover, Mr. Wright predicts that Bitcoin will go down to zero in the future.

Wright also claims that Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision) is the real Bitcoin and that he created the white paper of Bitcoin a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system.”

Wright wrote a blog post in which he said that he would send people to prison if they pretend to be Satoshi.

“I have claimed that I am Satoshi and that I created the white paper. I’ve made my claim under oath. I have sworn it in a court of law. If it turns out that I’m not, I will face 20 years in prison. The thing is, it will never happen because I am the creator of Bitcoin.”

He went on saying that he will “clean up the space” forcing everyone involved to swear they are Satoshi and created Bitcoin or just apologize.

Back in April 2019, Wright decided to file a lawsuit against Peter McCormack in April. Wright accused him after McCormack bullied him on Twitter and attacked him personally.

Craig Wright claims that Bitcoin is also going to zero and that it will be too late when people will realize that. He claims that Bitcoin became perverted and tainted because it moved into a vehicle for criminal activity, specifically money laundering.
