Minecraft creator, Markus Persson (better know as Notch, and founder of Mojang AB ) posted the following on his Twitter account earlier today ... In early August, Bethesda sent a letter to Notch saying that the "Scrolls" title of his upcoming game infringed on their trademark for the "Elder Scrolls" series, and would cause consumers confusion with their titles, such as the upcoming "Elder Scrolls : Skyrim". There has been much speculation on this lawsuit and even if it would ever make it to court. That does not seem to be in question anymore. It's possible that if Mojang is granted a trademark for "Scrolls", it could cause Bethesda problems in the future with their games. We really won't know what's up until lawsuit details come out. Bethesda is also currently involved in litigation with Interplay and Masthead over the Fallout MMO, but was recently denied a restraining order from the courts. This did not affect the litigation in any manner, it was just ruled by the judge that Bethesda could not show ample need to fast-track the litigation. I personally think that Bethesda has to defend their trademark so that in the future if some company came out with a game titled something like, "Oldest Scrolls" they would have set a precidence for actively persuing trademark enforcement even if they do not win against Mojang. But who knows, as I am not a lawyer, never played one on TV and did not stay at a Holliday Inn last night.  : Mojang AB (Full Swedish name; Mojäng Aktiebolag -- Swedish for "Gadget Ltd.") is the indie joint-stock company responsible for the creation and development of Minecraft.
