Bethesda and Mojang settle on Scrolls lawsuit

Publish date:

An agreement has been made between Mojang and Bethesda regarding the Scrolls trademark dispute, Mojang CEO and Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has announced via twitter.

Issues arose several months back when Mojang received the news that they were being summoned to court by Bethesda for choosing the Scrolls name for its next game - what Bethesda thought was skirting a bit close to infringing on the Elder Scrolls franchise.

Now it seems a compromise that is to both companies' liking has come about.

"The settlement is that we give them the trademark, get to keep the name, and won't make an Elder Scrolls competitor using the name," Persson stated.

Persson added Mojang was not forced to pay any damages for their use of the word.
