I don't want to have to start being a total 'dick' about this, but everyone should realize that my "Threshold of Originality" (in regards to the #Bitcoin #BTC logo) can be legally exercised over the entire cryptocurrency industry.

I think your attempt at rent-seeking here is petty and selfish, and it will ultimately be unsuccessful. It's a move worthy of CSW himself. That's just my opinion, so it doesn't really matter.

The important difference here being that CSW has zero actual "Threshold of Originality" over anything to do with Bitcoin, whatsoever.

Whereas, I quite clearly do.  Roll Eyes

"... #Bitcoin is a commodity money, "digital cash system".

"Commodity money is money whose value comes from a commodity of which it is made."

The intrinsic (base) value of bitcoin is from electricity, CPU time and cryptography (math / pow).

Commodity money wiki - Excerpt: "Commodity money is money whose value comes from a commodity of which it is made. Commodity money consists of objects having value or use in themselves (intrinsic value) as well as their value in buying goods. This is in contrast to representative money, which has no intrinsic value but represents something of value such as gold or silver, in which it can be exchanged, and fiat money, which derives its value from having been established as money by government regulation. ..."

All and any use of the BSV "centred", "yellow" (unofficial Bitcoin) logo(s) and BCH "left tilted ", "green" (unofficial Bitcoin) logo(s) has breached my Threshold of Originality, as originator of the current Bitcoin BTC "right tilted", "orange" logo design and I have requested that they Cease and Desist.
Have you ever received any reply regarding this issue from some member of CSW, Roger Ver or anyone else connected with them?
I am sure that I saw more shitcoins that used same logo with minor changes or different colors but they are probably even less irrelevant than this two.

For all the times I appeared on TV, films, and on the radio as a casual passersby or as an element of the landscape, and my image has not been compensated . . . for all the words or expressions of high communicative impact I have coined in peripheral cafes, squares, street corners, and social centers that became powerful advertising jingles, without seeing a dime; for all the times my name and my personal data have been put at work inside stats, to adjust the demand, refine marketing strategies, increase the productivity of firms to which I could not be more indifferent; for all the advertising I continuously make by wearing branded t-shirts, backpacks, socks, jackets, bathing suits, towels, without my body being remunerated as a commercial billboard; for all of this and much more, the industry of the integrated spectacle owes me money! I understand it may be difficult to calculate how much they owe me as an individual. But this is not necessary at all, because I am Luther Blissett, the multiple and the multiplex.

    And what the industry of the integrated spectacle owes me, it is owed to the many that I am, and is owed to me because I am many. From this viewpoint, we can agree on a generalized compensation.

To clarify, use of the original "right tilted", "orange" #Bitcoin #BTC logo continues unhindered 'as-is' in the public domain."

I don't get it. If the logo is in the public domain, then how can its use be restricted?

I maintain Threshold of Originality over the current Bitcoin BTC logo / design concept, as a proven originator of the logo design.

I can therefore apply (and legally enforce) Trademarks in jurisdictions.

Threshold of originality

Whilst "This work is ineligible for copyright and therefore in the public domain because it consists entirely of information that is common property and contains no original authorship." ...

"This work includes material that may be protected as a trademark in some jurisdictions. If you want to use it, you have to ensure that you have the legal right to do so and that you do not infringe any trademark rights."

...

To clarify, use of the original "right tilted", "orange" #Bitcoin #BTC logo continues unhindered 'as-is' in the public domain.

Use of any "left tilted ", "green" (unofficial Bitcoin) logo is therefore in breach of my Threshold of Originality.

Use of any "centred", "yellow" (unofficial Bitcoin) logo is therefore in breach of my Threshold of Originality.

...

BCH and BSV are both copies / forks of BTC.

In terms of trademark branding, BCH and BSV have modified the officially recognised BTC logo.

Effectively the BCH and BSV logos (and blockchains up to the forked blocks) are counterfeit.

Counterfeit
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterfeit

"To counterfeit means to imitate something authentic, with the intent to steal, destroy, or replace the original, for use in illegal transactions, or otherwise to deceive individuals into believing that the fake is of equal or greater value than the real thing. Counterfeit products are fakes or unauthorized replicas of the real product. Counterfeit products are often produced with the intent to take advantage of the superior value of the imitated product. The word counterfeit frequently describes both the forgeries of currency and documents ..."
