Bethesda vs. Mojang

Looks like notch is trying to get a trademark on the word "scrolls" in all forms of media, so if he were to get it, he could essentially sue the shit out of bethesda for using the word "Scrolls" in their games.

He offered to drop the trademark on Scroll and even change the name to Scrolls: something something but they ignored it.

But that's the thing though, he's applying for the trademark in like every aspect that the word could fit into. Like Bethesda has it in fantasy games. But Mojang supposedly is trying to get it for every single thing possible.

if this does go to court, Zenimax will win. Judicially, Mojang doesn't have a leg to stand on at all.

theres no way he will get the patent for the word scrolls.

hes more or less doing it to get more attention to the word it self so that its less likely to be assoicated with elder scrolls.

just so he has more leverage in the court case.

I'd support Mojang if they weren't applying for the trademark in all forms of media.
As it is I think there should be more details
