Craig Wright's appeal in Bitcoin rights lawsuit granted by UK court

Craig Wright’s appeal in Bitcoin rights lawsuit granted by UK court

The British court has granted Craig Wright the right to appeal a lawsuit claiming copyright to the Bitcoin white paper and database. This decision reverses a prior ruling that considered Wright’s arguments insufficient. Wright, who claims to be the inventor of Bitcoin, has filed a lawsuit against Bitcoin Core developers and several companies alleging violation of his copyright. The case is expected to go to trial in early 2024. The Bitcoin Legal Defense Fund argues that Wright has not been able to prove that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. The case raises concerns about the precedent it sets for open-source software development.
