US Copyright Office Says It Can’t Verify Craig Wright As Satoshi Nakamoto

Self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright is going the distance, to prove that he is indeed the founder of bitcoin. Recently, Wright filed a copyright application in US Copyright Office for the original Bitcoin whitepaper and early Bitcoin code.

And by doing so he has also recouped a substantial part of the loss that came in the value of Bitcoin SV ever since its creation. The community, however, has still not agreed completely to recognize him as Satoshi Nakamoto.

However, the US Copyright Office stated that it would neither investigate if the claims were true and nor would it put forth any opposition, the likes of which are usually put forward by the Patent and Trademark Office for patents and trademark registrations.

It said, “As a general rule, when the Copyright Office receives an application for registration, the claimant certifies as to the truth of the statements made in the submitted materials. The Copyright Office does not investigate the truth of any statement made.”

Shedding light on their procedures, the Office further said, “The examination process is primarily focused on determining whether a deposited work is eligible for protection under the Copyright Act and whether the application satisfies the requirements of registration. The Copyright Office will correspond with the claimant to clear up any obvious inconsistencies. The Copyright Office may similarly correspond with a claimant if a deposited work seems to include portions a well-known work whose author is known.”

This comes after, a United States court ordered Wright to prove his identity as Satoshi Nakamoto.

As earlier reported by Crypto-News India, a United States District Court of the Southern District of Florida issued an order on May 3, which compels Wright to produce a list of his bitcoin public addresses. The order was brought about when the estate of computer scientist, David Kleiman filed a case against Wright, accusing the latter of stealing hundreds of thousands of BTC, which were more than $5 billion dollars in February last year.
