Bethesda takes Mojang to court over Scrolls

While gamers around the world were hoping for the best, Bethesda Softworks really is taking Notch and Mojang to court, over alleged copyright infringement.



The Minecraft developer is currently working on a new game, known as Scrolls. It seems that Bethesda has decided that the title is a little bit too close to the Elder Scrolls trademark it has held for years.

Company founder Markus Persson (better known as Notch), posted the news to Twitter, hin his typical fashion:

The Scrolls case is going to court! Weee!

This story started back in early August, with Notch later challenging the publisher to a bit of Quake 3 deathmatch, to settle the case out of court.

Looks like that suggestion didn’t go down as well as anticipated, with the publisher preferring to settle things the old-fashioned way.

This story was featured in Episode 33, Season 2 of playerattack News:
