COPA Sues In UK Against Craig Wright For Bitcoin White Paper Copyright Claim

A crypto industry working group committed to patent sharing is asking the United Kingdom High Court to rule that Craig Wright does not own the Bitcoin white paper.

The civil suit from the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA) challenges claims Wright has continuously made in recent years that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of bitcoin and the author of the white paper. The white paper was published in 2008.
