Bethesda is serious about changing Scrolls

Written by Nick Farell

It looks like games outfit Bethesda really is  serious getting the name of Mojang's upcoming Scrolls changed.

It filed a lawsuit it filed against the Minecraft developer this summer and Mojang's Markus Persson tried to pass the whole thing off as a joke. He challenged Behesda to a counter-strike tournament to sort it out.

Bethesda would have been better off doing so. It would have won and gained some good PR. Instead it has to go to court to fight over the use of the name Scrolls. Mojang's Scrolls, is collectible card/board game hybrid but Bethesda said that  it is confusingly similar with its Elder Scrolls trademark.

Persson Twittered yesterday that a court case was happening and the Scrolls case is going to court. Mojang business developer Daniel Kaplan confirmed to Gamasutra that they have been notified by Swedish court of the development.

Court documents show that Bethesda lawyers plan to use comments on Scrolls articles and videos from around the web to show how people will confuse Scrolls with The Elder Scrolls. It claims that Mojang has copied Bethesda because both Skyrim and Scrolls contain mountains. So does the United States but no one sues that for breach of trademark.
