Notch's Bethesda case going to court
Minecraft developer sued over use of the word "scrolls"
The Bethesda Softworks division, founded in 1986, has a long history of success as a developer and publisher...
Minecraft developer Mojang Specifications will face Bethesda in court, over use of the word "scrolls."
Mojang is currently working on a new game called Scrolls, but Bethesda claims this infringes its Elder Scrolls trademark.
Company founder Markus Persson, better known as Notch, confirmed the news on his personal Twitter account earlier today.
"The Scrolls case is going to court! Weee!"
In early August Bethesda wrote a letter to Persson.
"Just got a letter from Bethesta's [sic] lawyers," he wrote on Twitter.
"They claim 'Scrolls' infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim."
Bethesda is also taking legal action against Interplay and Masthead over alleged copyright infringement, but the publisher has been denied a restraining order.
