Mojang wins interim injunction in Scrolls case
Court sides with Minecraft developer in the short term
The Bethesda Softworks division, founded in 1986, has a long history of success as a developer and publisher...
Minecraft maker Mojang has won a temporary injunction against Skyrim publisher Bethesda and parent company ZeniMax for the use of the name "Scrolls."
ZeniMax is taking legal action against Mojang for use of the word, which it claims infringes its copyright on the Elder Scrolls RPG series. Mojang's forthcoming Scrolls game is a strategic card game that's been in development for five years.
"We won the interim injunction! We can keep using the name "Scrolls". ZeniMax/Bethesda can still appeal the ruling, but I'm very happy," said Markus Persson, founder of Swedish studio Mojang.
The interim injunction lets Mojang use the name until the case is taken further by Bethesda.
