The copyright claim issue began with Craig Wright the lead proponent of Bitcoin SV [BSV] along with Calvin Ayre’s media publication, spread the news which led the people to believe that the US Copyright Office had granted Craig the ownership for Bitcoins’ creation. That he is, in fact, Satoshi Nakamoto himself.

The hoax was put to a stop when leading lawyers explained the US copyright laws. Jake Chervinsky noted that,
This is nonsense. There’s literally no such thing as being “awarded a copyright” under US law. The only real benefit of registering with the Copyright Office is the right to sue for statutory damages & attorney’s fees. Craig Wright’s copyright registration is meaningless theater.
Moreover, according to the law, more than one competing claims are invited for any work, and they do not even verify the claims in case of anonymous work like Bitcoin.

Nevertheless, despite the debate between Bitcoin SV proponents and crypto-community, the price of Bitcoin SV has increased tremendously in the past couple of weeks. The price rose by 300% after the news of the Copyright broke out. The price rose from $60 to a high above $240 during the rise.

The rise can be categorized as abnormal; however, it has in some parts led the altcoins in the green as well. It gained about 100% from 29th to 30th May 2019.
Manipulation is also suspected in the Bitcoin SV markets. Earlier today, a flash crash of more about 80% from $207 was recorded, when Bitcoin SV fell to a low of $44. Reportedly, a large sell order of 25000 BSV triggered the move but was instantly filled at the market price before the crash.

The markets at other Exchanges remained unaffected during the move at Bitfinex. The rise of BSV price is supported not only by weak fundamentals but ambiguous implications, which raise ultimate questions on the credibility of the increase.

US Copyright Office Issues Press Release on the Bitcoin Copyright Registration
According to the press release by the US Copyright Office, while Craig Wright has officially sworn in at the office that he is, in fact, the original author and claimant of the Bitcoin White Paper,
 “The Copyright Office does not have an opposition procedure for copyright registrations, such as the procedures available at the Patent and Trademark Office for patents and trademark registrations. Disputes over the claims in a registration may be heard before federal courts, including disputes over authorship of a work. Someone who intentionally includes false information in an application may be subject to penalties.”
The US Copyright Office replied that especially in Bitcoin’s case in which a ‘pseudonym,’ or a fictitious name is used, which is common in literature and entertainment industry, they do not verify the claims.
“In a case in which a work is registered under a pseudonym, the Copyright Office does not investigate whether there is a provable connection between the claimant and the pseudonymous author.”
Craig Wright Sues Peter McCormack
Peter McCormack had earlier challenged Craig Wright’s claims saying he would fight till the end in a court to prove that Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto.
Craig Wright actually sued McCormack over the claims. According to the lawsuit, Craig Wright had filed a defamation case against Peter McCormack on 2nd May among other things. He is demanding a penalty and an apology in open court about refuting Craig’s claims that, he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. The details are not made public as they are sub judicial.
A new deadline for 24th May 2019 has been served to Peter McCormack under UK laws, to which McCormack has tweeted,
“RE: Craig Wright…I have spoken with two of the top legal firms in the world this morning. I will instruct one within a week. Let’s go get this motherf**ker!”
Crypto-Twitter seems to back Peter McCormack as they did during the fight with @hodlonaut. Pro-bono offers from lawyers and GoFundMe campaigns also began to support Peter against Craig in court. The drama will unfold in court in soon.
Do you think that proving Satoshi’s identity is detrimental for cryptocurrency markets? Will Craig Wright be successful in determining his claim? Please share your views.

As noted by Jerry Brito, the Executive director of Coincenter, 
Registering a copyright is just filing a form. The Copyright Office does not investigate the validity of the claim; they just register it. Unfortunately there is no official way to challenge a registration. If there are competing claims, the Office will just register all of them.
Hence, according to the laws of copyright in the US, while the registration has been granted to Wright it does not confirm or guarantee his identity. the Copyright is granted to anyone who files with a claim.
Do you think that Craig Wright’s attempt will be more detrimental to BSV’s prices now? Please share your views with us.
