Satoshi Nakamoto and Bitcoin SV supporter Craig Wright won a copyright infringement lawsuit against bitcoin.org for posting the Bitcoin White Paper.

Wright won by default after the site owner, alias “Cobra,” chose not to defend himself.

Bitcoin.org must now remove the paper book and display a message citing the ruling and paying at least £ 35,000 ($ 48,600) to cover Wright’s legal fees. Cobra responded to the decision via Twitter:

Wright’s legal representative, Onter LLP, noted the win as “a significant step forward in Dr. Wright’s quest to obtain legal evidence of his copyright in his white paper.”

“Dr. Wright does not want to restrict access to the Storting report,” wrote Simon Cohen, one of Unther’s senior aides. However, he disagrees that it should be used by proponents and developers of alternative assets like Bitcoin Core to market or otherwise misrepresent these assets like Bitcoin, as they do not support or align with the Bitcoin vision set out in his white paper. ”

In January, Wright sent letters to bitcoin.org, bitcoin.com, and bitcoincore.org asking them to remove copies of bitcoin documents from their websites, claiming they infringed his intellectual property.

In April, Wright received an email permit for Cøbra to operate outside of UK jurisdiction, and as of April 26, bitcoin.org has had 22 days to respond.

Cobra tweeted last month that he missed the deadline. Cobra responded to suggestion that they may have missed the deadline to keep their identity a secret: “No. I didn’t show up because defending against nonsense is a waste of time. ”
