Computer scientist Craig Wright believes Apple is in breach of his copyright to Bitcoin’s whitepaper.
In an April 6 tweet, Wright responded “Yes” to a question that asked if he thinks Apple was in breach of copyright.
Wright’s response was greeted with several snide tweets from the crypto community urging him to sue the giant technology company.
It was unclear if Wright would take legal actions against Apple as of press time.
CryptoSlate reported that the Bitcoin whitepaper had been hosted on every Mac computer running Catalina or newer operating systems since as far back as 2020.
Wright has repeatedly claimed that he is the creator of Bitcoin and the individual behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.
Wright has a history of Bitcoin litigation.
The self-proclaimed founder of Bitcoin has filed a litany of lawsuits over his intellectual right to the blockchain network.
In 2021, Wright got a default judgment against thewebsite to discontinue hosting its copy of the Bitcoin white paper. At the time, the community argued that Wright’s lawsuit ran contrary to the spirit of the network.
However, a U.K. judge recently ruled against Wright’s claims over Bitcoin’s file format. According to the judge, copyright law cannot be applied to something whose subject matter is not expressed or fixed anywhere.
Meanwhile, that has not deterred the computer scientist’s controversial approach to the BTC network and its underlying technology.
In 2022, Wright sued crypto exchanges Coinbase and Kraken over their misrepresenting of the “Bitcoin Core” as the actual Bitcoin. He says the real BTC is his Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV).
In a separate lawsuit, Wright sued 15 developers to obtain 111,000 BTC worth $2.5 billion. Judge Colin Birss in London’s Court of Appeals has allowed this case to be trialed.
