Civil Lawsuit Against Craig Wright Wants High Court to Rule Against His Bitcoin White Paper Claims – Bitcoin News
The Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), a bitcoin industry working group specializing in patent law, has filed a civil case against Craig Wright in the UK. For years Wright has maintained that he was Satoshi Nakamoto, but he has yet to prove it to the crypto public. COPA wants the UK Supreme Court to declare that Wright is not the rightful owner of the bitcoin white paper.
COPA v. Craig Wright
Recently, Bitcoin.com News reported on Craig Wright’s attempt to get websites to remove Bitcoin’s copyright infringement white paper. The attempt was unsuccessful, as a large number of websites decided to openly publish the white paper on their sites out of solidarity.
Moreover, COPA has challenged Wright’s attempt with a letter, asking the self-proclaimed inventor of bitcoin to prove his claim. Now COPA is going a step further, as a task force of the bitcoin industry has filed a civil suit against Craig Wright.
COPA has filed a lawsuit today asking the UK Supreme Court to declare that Mr Craig Wright does not hold copyright on the bitcoin white paper, the task force tweeted. We support the community of bitcoin developers and many others who have been threatened for publishing the white paper.
COPA wants Supreme Court to rule against newproperty claims by Wright
COPA wants the UK Supreme Court to declare that Craig Wright is not the owner of the bitcoin white paper. COPA was created to handle such cases because it is a patent sharing consortium whose purpose is to protect such court orders and patent trolls.
The appeal was filed on 9. April 2021 and the organization wants the Intellectual Property List of the High Court of Business and Property in England and Wales to rule on the case.
The jury stated that Wright was not the rightful owner and that copyright infringement was not possible until he proved his case. COPA even wants a court order against Craig Wright to prevent him from using the same tactic again. In addition, if Wright’s legal team loses the case against COPA, the organization is demanding that Wright pay for these cases or that he be awarded some other relief.
