For some reason I thought they settled this awhile ago, but it seems they just only recently settled the matter. If you didn't hear, Bethesda was suing Mojang, who makes Minecraft, over the title of their latest game called Scrolls. Bethesda was afraid that the name would confuse people over their ever popular series, Elder Scrolls. You know, since having just Scrolls in the name would make people think it is from the same series, sounds legit.
On Mojang's site they gave an update on the case stating,"We have settled the lawsuit over Scrolls and Mojang and Bethesda are friends again. To answer the big question – yes Scrolls is still going to be called Scrolls. To answer the second question – we aren’t going to keep the trade mark. For us this was never about a trade mark but being able to use Scrolls as the name of our game which we can – Yey." So they will be able to keep the Scrolls name for their game, but they cannot keep the trademark on the name.
I don't know, the whole lawsuit seemed odd in the first place. If you remember awhile back when Notch announced Scrolls, he and Todd Howard, who is a game designer/producer for Bethesda, and is often their poster boy for interviews and public events sat down and talked about Minecraft and the upcoming Scrolls. Yes, because Todd liked it, doesn't mean that Bethesda would have been happy, but I am still surprised they got in a knot over it. Though I guess I shouldn't be surprised since they also sued Interplay over the mmo rights of Fallout - which they agreed to in the first place.
All in all the issue seemed silly since the beginning, but now it is over and we can move on, even though I am sure most of us forgot about it in the first place.
