Yep, Bethesda, Developers of both Elder Scrolls, Fallout and Brink, are taking Mojang to court over the name of Mojangs game "Scrolls" which they are currently working on. Zenimax (owners of Bethesda) claim they have no choice in the matter because they beleave "Scrolls" infringes on their The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim trademark. Notch seem somewhat excited about the case when he announced it on Twitter yesterday. "The Scrolls case is going to court! Weee! " - Notch I have no doubt that anyone with half a brain can tell this case is a load of horse s***. Notch however I taking this case very seriously. He even challanged Bethesda to a game of Quake 3 to settle this. “I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors,” Notch writes. “We select one level, your select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins. If we win, you drop the lawsuit. If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you’re fine with. I am serious, by the way,” There is only one Notch! Anyway, I do not see why Bethesda are continuing with this case. Their lawyers must be swimming in money at this stage. Bethesda have no right to claim copyright over the English language if one word just happens to be in one of their games, even if they think that the word "Scrolls" will cause confusion. Not like anyone ever called an Elder Scrolls game by its full name. The last word is the important one. Anyone else ever call Elder Scrolls games anything other that Oblivion, Morrowind, Skyrim, etc? If anyone does get confused between the titles, they would clearly be idiots. "Scrolls" Is a collectible card game while "Elder Scrolls" is an open world 3D rpg. Only for ONE word the games are similar in no way. Look at FortressCraft. Extremely similar game and name to Minecraft. Did Mojang sue? Of course not. Notch even Congratulated the FC creator for the games success. Notch has my FULL support in this case. I may be a fan of Bethesda's work, but I'm also a fan of Kanye West. And we all know he's an arsehole.
