Man Who Claims To Be Bitcoin’s Inventor Registers Copyright for Its Code
The U.S. Copyright Office awarded self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor Craig Wright registrations for the whitepaper and early computer code underlying the original cryptocurrency.
The agency posted the registrations on its website, naming the controversial Australian computer scientist as the author of the marketing proposal and the code under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Still, the registrations — which aren’t subject to the same exhaustive process as granting a patent — may not actually settle the issue.
