Quoted from thread topic: "Dr Bitcoin - The Man Who Wasn't Satoshi Nakamoto - Podcast" ...
- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5372209.msg59221524#msg59221524

...

...snip...

@BitcoinFX are you planning to start a lawsuit and legal action against Craig Faketoshi Wright, his partners in crime (some of them are active trolls in this forum) and other people who stole, plagiarized and edited Bitcoin logo that you created?
Changing a color or tilt does not make logo original, and it's a obvious case of stealing that reminds me on recent case of Croatian euro design scandal.
You can read more about that in this article:
https://www.euractiv.com/section/politics/short_news/design-of-euro-coins-in-croatia-creates-scandal/


Indeed. Let's just say that as of right now I'm "ready to fire on all cylinders", in this regard.

Whilst I really despise the (mostly unjust) legal system (where the only real winners are usually the lawyers), I have a solid case here in terms of my Threshold of Originality, as one originator of the current Bitcoin BTC logo design ...

Re: Bitcoin Currency Symbol ฿, February 05, 2010

I guess if we need to make it a bit more distinguishable then we could adopt the italic version. Grin

...

On Feb 8, 2022 at 10:38 AM - following Craig Stephen Wright rejoining twitter, I "BitcoinFX" effectively served him with a cease and desist notification highlighting the ongoing infringement ...

"Final (digital) notification:

@Dr_CSWright

Your projects have copied my Bitcoin BTC logo design and breach my Threshold of Originality.

Cease and desist.

The #Bitcoin #BTC logo is Orange with the "B" tilted right as per https://bitcoin.org
https://twitter.com/BitcoinFX_XBT/status/1392787600377884672"


- https://twitter.com/BitcoinFX_XBT/status/1490998569905848326  <<<<<

...

Between 10:38 AM and 3:13 PM · Feb 8, 2022 Craig Stephen Wright had clearly read my cease and desist notification and continues to 'block' my account ...

"@Dr_CSWright

"You have been served". ... "



- https://twitter.com/BitcoinFX_XBT/status/1491067758590959618  <<<<<

Grin

...

At this juncture, I'm monitoring the ongoing COPA case against Craig and BSV.

Watch "this space" for any trademarks / notifications.

Go for it  Smiley
We really do need some legal people in this forum!
If there’s any solicitors/ lawyers who are members of this forum, please raise your hand. I’m sure other members would be happy to collaborate on any of the technical details of Bitcoin and let you do the legal stuff!
Can’t help much personally, but good luck and full support  Smiley

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

File:Bitcoin.svg
- https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bitcoin.svg

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 ..."

Correct me if I am wrong, but you state that the logo is public domain, which is equivalent to saying that there is no copyright.

Copyrights and trademarks are different things. Unlike a copyright, a trademark must be registered. If you have registered a trademark, then I guess you can sue for infringement. Have you registered the logo as a trademark?

I was wrong about trademarks, here is what Justia says about unregistered trademarks in the U.S.A.:

If you do not register your trademark, you will have legal rights only within the geographic areas where you operate. This means you may be able to stop a subsequent user of the mark ... from using the mark in your geographic area only. You can claim trademark rights in your unregistered trademark as long as it is distinctive and identifies or distinguishes your products or services.

Have you actually checked what bsv trolls said on their website back in 2019?
They used exact same Bitcoin logo, changed color with tilt, and they said it's their own unique logo design  Cheesy
This would be like if I use any public domain logo, let's take for example well know Olympic rings logo by Pierre de Coubertin, change color, tilt it and call it my own unique creation.
This is what Faketoshi and his cult members are doing  Tongue

Yes, and I believe there is nothing wrong with that because it is not a trademark and it is public domain.

let's take for example well know Olympic rings logo by Pierre de Coubertin, change color, tilt it and call it my own unique creation.

That's a bad example because the olympic logo is a trademark, and the bitcoin logo is not.

Furthermore, the bitcoin logo has been in use for many years without any attempts by trademark holders to stop its use. A court would probably find that the bitcoin logo is generic because of its widespread use and cannot be used as a trademark.

You can also believe that gremlins and unicorns exist if you want, but this is not OK and you can ask any designer for his opinion.
Common sense is also enough (for most people).

That's a bad example because the olympic logo is a trademark, and the bitcoin logo is not.
Sorry but I have to say that you have no idea what you are talking about.
Please do at least minimal research before posting something like this or simply visit wiki pages for both logos... it would only take few minutes of your time.
Here I will chew it down for you, and make it a baby food:

I am not sure that is correct. My understanding is that a trademark holder can take action to prevent someone from confusing potential customers into thinking a product is similar to the trademark holder's brand.

So if Dell were to sell a Dell computer named "Mac", then Apple could sue Dell for trademark infringement because Dell is confusing potential customers as to the brand of computers being sold. There may be the potential to extend that concept to a logo. However the entity bringing the action needs to be the trademark holder, not the creator of the name or the logo.

Satoshi was against copyleft due to Bitcoin being MIT licenced. <-- an interesting point
The yellow, two-bar logo released by Satoshi could be argued as MIT licenced, much like the bitcoin code.

New icons, what do you think?  Better than the old one?

     

Full size 530x529 image for scaling down to custom sizes:
http://www.bitcoin.org/download/bitcoin530.png

The perspective shadow was too thick on the larger sizes.  I updated 32, 48 and the full size.

I release these images into the public domain (copyright-free).  I request that derivative works be made public domain.

Quote from: BitcoinFX
Use of any "centred", "yellow" (unofficial Bitcoin) logo is therefore in breach of my Threshold of Originality.
How similar is that to the one used as this forum's icon?  How would this affect this forum's use of a similar icon?

You might have a hard time with this because the logo released by SN on 24 Feb 2010 was centred and yellow. It had two bars instead of the singular bar on the bhat symbol, without any bar that passes through the B. I think SN did two bars to avoid this issue of copyrights even amongst potential co-creators, as it would be his contribution above the threshold of originality so he could release it into the public domain. The Thai Bhat symbol was suggested by Liberty, where you suggested the italicised version after that (as you quoted, 5 Feb 2010), so are those sufficiently different? There were also concerns that ฿ was already a currency, so BTC was created as a different symbol. The former existence of the Bhat symbol especially as a currency complicates rights and precedence to both symbols, which could enforce public-domain usage of even the symbol for BTC.

Copyleft versus MIT licensing of the logo was discussed pretty early on.
If you GPL stuff, I have to avoid using it.  Nothing against GPL per-se, but Bitcoin is an MIT license project.  Anything GPL please clearly mark it as such.

Is there a chance that you either explicitly stated or insinuated that your contributions could be MIT licenced, like to SN privately? Is there a chance that you put any portion of your designs as MIT license versus copyleft?
As well as GNU GPL why not attach a Creative Commons License http://creativecommons.org/ to them. You can reference the project address and request a Bitcoin donation for their reproduction. Smiley

Also relevant:
Do the attachment images from these still exist anywhere?  Who had the most precedence, and what is the uniqueness of your designs from what they posted? (Don't get me wrong -- I greatly appreciate your contributions, but want to make sure that you've considered other angles.)

Everyone open your graphics editor and make a "we accept Bitcoin" logo. A good looking logo (preferably better than mine Tongue) would be really useful.

My first version attached.
---
There is this to consider:
That is fine, BitcoinFX. I invoked Copyleft just so that everyone could do such things. Simply, you may do whatever you want with them except claim they are your creation and try to sell them.
Choices are now between my recreation of the old coin and satoshi's official new coin.
---
For full reference, on 1 Nov 2010, bitboy posted a logo that became the main logo without restriction -
I have just made the changes to the license CC-Attribution. As a token of appreciation to all you guys, I have made available the wallet graphics which I just completed as well.
Now everyone can make use of the graphics freely even for commercial purposes with this license and not bound by any restriction. Smiley Will post the vector file as soon as I get some time to sit down this weekend.
Hi, you can use it without any attribution. By the way, I have done a some graphics for your website too, no string attached. Here:
The licence should  be the same as the original logo imo because we know for sure that is the one satoshi supports.

Bitboy's profile currently states: "I did not receive any private messages or instruction from anyone before, and when I first created those graphics, not even from SN."
This signature was modified after 2018, and there have been several forum hacks between 2010 and 2018, so the present signature (2022) is not trustworthy as coming from him.

Notice that when satoshi launched bitcoin.org the Bitcoin logo (and software) had a BC logo 'gold' design.

I guess if we need to make it a bit more distinguishable then we could adopt the italic version. Grin

...

N.B. Identical snapshots of the above sources likely exist (as additional evidence / proof) due to the BitcoinTalk forum being migrated.

Said snapshots will be updated ASAP (where relevant to this case) with additional images and screenshots also being presented.

EDIT1: N.B. That the following two links get refactored when posted to BitcoinTalk as bitcointalk.org ...

At this juncture I may or may not also be user account 'bitboy' and/or have commissioned (and/or inspired directly and/or indirectly) 'bitboy' to create the current and officially recognized Bitcoin BTC italicized, "right tilted", "orange" logo.

Regardless, I maintain the "Threshold of Originality" ... See:

N.B. Phil Wilson is NOT user account 'bitboy'.

It does not matter whether Craig Wright is satoshi or not (he is NOT satoshi), in regards to this case ...

It does not even matter whether Satoshi Nakamoto is Satoshi Nakamoto, in regards to this case ...

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.

No comment.

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.

   "The industry of the integrated spectacle and immaterial command owes me money. I will not come to terms with it until I will not have what is owed to me. 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. You will not have peace until I will not have the money! LOTS OF MONEY BECAUSE I AM MANY: CITIZEN INCOME FOR LUTHER BLISSETT!"

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



EDIT: Additional:

What part of "... I will not come to terms with it until I will not have what is owed to me. ..." is,

and I quote: "a move worthy of CSW himself" ?
