Craig Wright Does Not Have a Copyright and is not Satoshi

Since the 2009 creation of Bitcoin, mystery has surrounded the true identity of the pseudonymous, Satoshi Nakamoto. Speculations and investigations to prove the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto have not produced hard evidence. Many believe that the real Satoshi was likely Hal Finney, a cryptographer who had documented emails and wallet transactions supporting his involvement, and potentiality for being the real Satoshi. Finney even lived a few blocks from an actual person, Satoshi "Dorian" Nakamoto, whose name could have been used to obfuscate Finney's real identity. Sadly, Hal Finney passed away in a 2014, so little more can be done to investigate this. Others also speculate that computer scientist Nick Szabo may be the real Satoshi, but Szabo has continually denied the claim, despite multiple efforts to prove it. That leaves us with Craig Wright. 

Craig Wright has been publicly asserting that he is indeed the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Many notable members in the cryptocurrency space have come out adamantly saying that Craig Wright is NOT Satoshi Nakamoto. 

In April, Calvin Ayre (founder of the Ayre Group and Bodog) Tweeted on behalf of Craig Wright stating:

Vitalik Buterin, co-creator of Ethereum and star of the above video, is one of the people being sued by Craig Wright on the grounds of libel. Once wind of Wright and Ayre's threats caught, a deluge of outcry came in support of those being targeted by Wright. 

Before lawsuits were filed, Wright's attorney sent out a letter advising those accused of libelist comments. Peter McCormack, host of the popular WhatBitcoinDid podcast, Tweeted out the letter which he received:
