Mojang officially heading to court in “Scrolls” case

Mojang vs. Bethesda

It’s been a while since we first heard about the legal rumbling from both Bethesda Softworks and Mojang. In regards to a possible trademark lawsuit involving Mojang’s upcoming card based game “Scrolls”. In which Bethesda claimed that Mojang’s “Scrolls” infringed on their “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” trademark.

At one point, Mojang Founder Markus Persson (Notch) proposed a game of Quake to settle the case. But apparently Bethesda didn’t care for Perssons’s proposal since the case is now heading to court. According to this recent twitter tweet from Persson:

The Scrolls case is going to court! Weee! :D

Not much else is know about the case. Other than the fact it’s a trademark dispute over the name. And it’s not known when and where the case will take place.

I’ll make sure to update this, or make another when more information comes available in regards to this case.
