Minecraft-Bethesda going to court!
By: wolfblake (September 27, 2011 At 9:56 pm CDT)
Minecraft's creator, Markus "Notch" Persson suggested his legal issues with Bethesda Softworks would be settled over Quake III Arena. Unfortunately Bethesda could not come to an agreement.

The dispute went public in August when Persson posted a blog about a threat from Bethesda's legal team regarding the title of his next project, Scrolls.

"I agree the word 'Scrolls' is part of that trademark, but as a gamer, I have never considered that series of role-playing games to be about scrolls in any way, nor was that ever the focal point of neither their marketing nor the public image," Persson wrote. "The implication that you could own the right to all individual words within a trademark is a bit scary. We looked things up and realized they didn't have much of a case, but we still took it seriously."

Bethesda is a great company and I love almost all of their games, But they are just being over-paranoid and silly now.
