The legal action was initiated when the owner of bitcoin.org known as Cobra denied Wright’s demand to remove the whitepaper from his website. The case will now force the judges to take a view on whether Wright is the creator of BTC or not. The incident started back in January of 2021 after Cobra refused Wright’s demand to remove the whitepaper from his website with Cobra saying that Wright has no claims on the whitepaper. Cobra said that Wright claimed to be authoring the paper which can be easily verified as a fake statement. Adding that this step is actually an abuse of the UK legal system:
“Seems like he’s trying to abuse the UK courts to make them try to censor the white paper and harass small websites like us providing education content with his behavior.”
You’re wrong if you think you can bully me you creepy loser. If I have to give up my pseudonymity to defend Satoshi’s whitepaper, arguably the most important paper of the 21st century, then so be it. https://t.co/YpqXlD8DlP

Wright’s lawyer Simon Cohen insisted the purpose of the case is not to restrict access to silence, paper, or intimidate people but instead it is about protecting his intellectual property. Cohen also brought up a long-running dispute where Wright believes his creation Bitcoin Satoshi Vision is actually the true BTC:
“Similarly, Dr. Wright does not wish to restrict access to his white paper but does not agree that it should be used b supporters and developers of altearntive assets such as Bitcoin core, to promote or otherwise misrepresent those assets of being bitcoin, given that they do not support or align with the vision for bitcoin as he set out in his white paper.”
Bitcoin SV forked from Bitcoin Cash three years ago and claims even more stability and scalability than the predecessors by having a bigger block size. This enables it to handle more transactions and makes it perfect for blockchain enterprise solutions.
