Amid the litigation that Craig Wright, self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin (BTC), filed against Bitcoin.org and BitcoinCore.org for the publication of the BTC White Paper for allegedly violating copyright law, The community has shown its rebellion and rejection of Wright’s claims about “fair” Bitcoin.
Thanks to this action by the self-proclaimed Australian programmer, the Bitcoin White Paper is now available in several places. From exchanges to educational portals, they have decided to “challenge” Craig and published the white paper of the most important cryptocurrency in the market.
The demonstration of rebellion and support for the decentralization of Bitcoin wasn’t limited to members of the community, however, and even government agencies have chosen to act accordingly after Balaji Srinivasan, former CTO of Coinbase, asked on Twitter. “What will be the first government web domain to host the Bitcoin whitepaper?”.
This is actually an excellent goal. What is the first government domain to host the Bitcoin whitepaper?
In some places it might happen first:

Bitcoin White Paper Legal Problems?
As we mentioned at Cointelegraph, Both BitcoinCore.org and Bitcoin.org have been threatened with legal action by Craig Wright if they continue to leave the BTC White Paper on their websites.
Bitcoin’s self-proclaimed creator claims that the publication of these documents violates his copyright. despite the fact that the document was originally published under an MIT license that Satoshi Nakamoto himself managed.
In the event that the aforementioned portals decide to ignore communications from Craig Wright’s attorneys and keep the document online, Craig himself warned that he would initiate legal proceedings against her for copyright infringement.
