missing something fundamental...

If you publish an exploit as "BitWizard97", and somebody scarfs
it up and starts selling it,

Starts selling what? Already published exploit? Bwahahaha...

filing the suit to enjoin them from selling it without your
permission under a company name doesn't make it any easier
to prove that you, or the company, have any legal standing
to represent BitWizard97.

Digital signatures may help. Actually, you don't need to prove
that you are the BitWizard97 - you only need to prove that you
can act on his behalf (that means: read encrypted messages and
sign the replies with his key).

It's especially problematic if the local law enforcement
authorities want to have a little chat with BitWizard97
regarding some other activities...

They should want to ask those questions to another person -
say, BitBreaker12, who may be suspected in something illegal.
