On January 21, Craig Wright, the Australian computer scientist who claims to be Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto, threatened legal action against the owners of many websites that were hosting Bitcoin Whitepaper.
On that day, teams of bitcoin.org and bitcoincore.org received allegations of copyright infringement from Craig Wright’s lawyers. In the letter sent to the mentioned websites, Craig Wright, as Bitcoin inventor, claimed to be the legal copyright holder of the Bitcoin whitepaper and demanded to remove the locally hosted copies of Bitcoin whitepaper from their website.
Bitcoincore.org removed the whitepaper but the other party, bitcoin.org, refused to take down the paper. The owner of bitcoin.org who calls himself ‘Cobra’ remained determined showing the intensions of not to do what he was asked for.
