Craig Wright has filed a copyright registration for the original Bitcoin [BTC] whitepaper. The controversy surrounding Satoshi’s real identity and Craig Wright’s claims had reached its height on Twitter when Binance decided to #delistBSV.
Now, Wright has made another attempt to cause FUD and FOMO in the market by filling a registration with the U.S. Copyright Office supporting his claims of authorship Bitcoin’s whitepaper.

The price of Bitcoin SV shot up by more than 100% as the news of the registration was broken earlier on 21st May 2019. The price of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] at 13: 45 hours UTC is around $110. It touched a high of $135 a moment ago this time as the registration was being interpreted as confirmation of Craig Wright being Satoshi Nakamoto.
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.
