The lights are on
It's been over six months since Bethesda decided to sue Mojang, the developer behind Minecraft, because of the indie studio's decision to name an upcoming project "Scrolls." Now that lawsuit is officially ended with both parties apparently pleased.
According to a tweet from Mojang head Markus "Notch" Persson, the two parties have reached a settlement where Bethesda maintains the trademark on the word "Scrolls" while allowing the smaller studio to use the name. Notch says his studio did not have to pay damages to Bethesda as part of the settlement.
This definitely seemed like a frivolous lawsuit from the start, so it's nice to see it taken care of without a long, painful court process. With that out of the way, let's hope we can see more of the Scrolls project from Mojang soon!
Peace, people, peace. xD
I would hjave liked younger scrolls to be the title, now THAT would be a reason to sue. ( over hilariousness!)
Nice that it ended amicalblly. Two things though:1) Why does'nt Bethesda think that gamers are smart enough to tell the differnce 2) They should have settled this like men, mano a mano on the field of battle in Quake 3
I guess the result is all we could really ask for.
