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!
It`s about time.
Wait, so who shot Mr.Burns?
who won the quakeIII battle?
bethesda probably just posturing for shareholders or upper echelons whom where probably complaining about it.
But you can trademark anything lol
Thank god. The whole lawsuit wasn't necessary anyway.
Im impressed it only took 6 months to settle this.
Nice to see everyone calmed down.
this is just a weird lawsuit as it is idk why they would trademark 1 word thats part of a whole titles but whatever least notch can still use the title and i assume doesn't have to pay anything
Actually, it was Bethesda's parent company, Zenimax, that was suing Mojang.
He should've counter-sued for the "Notched Pickaxe."
Wow. Over the word "Scrolls"
Good to hear both sides are happy.
