(BlockBar) The self proclaimed Craig Wright, now has a legal challenger to his recent copyright claim over the Bitcoin whitepaper. Last week the public was told by Wright’s media team that he was granted two US copyrights for the original Bitcoin whitepaper. The cryptocurrency community responded to this news in uproar and according to most of the supporters the act was meaningless.
This is to be noted that a new copyright filing for the whitepaper was published on May 24 by an individual called Wei Liu. According to the copyright Wei Liu is the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto and Liu’s filing cites a date of publication of November 1, 2008. The filing claims that Wei Liu is a Chinese citizen who declares “authorship” of the whitepaper’s “text.” Although he has 19 copyrights which claim ownership to a myriad of technological achievements, but his identity is relatively unknown
Other than the whitepaper, Wei Liu contends to have authored papers on, frameworks for quantitative evaluation of care coordination, distribution kinetics, biomechanical analysis of arm reaching, and large-scale machine learning. To be noted some part of Wei Liu’s copyrighted studies deals with health and biology-related networks as well. Even though, it is pretty unclear why Wei Liu filed the registration with the Copyright Office but by doing so he joins Craig Wright, Gabriel Brias Buendia, and others who have done the same.
A photoshopped Coinbull report is being spread on Chinese Social Media Channels. According to the news the recent BSV price spike was allegedly fueled by a phony alert under the popular news organization Coinbull.
An unknown person published a fake Coinbull news update in order to push up the price of BSV, says Dovey Wan, founding partner at Primitive Ventures. “CSW transferred 50k BTC from the biggest BTC wallet to Binance, which confirmed he is the real Satoshi — As such CZ will re-list BSV and make an official apology on Twitter,” the message reads. In the response to the faux, Coinbull said that the faux post stating the image was “maliciously photoshopped” and its intent was to “impersonate Coinbull to spread rumors.”
