>Notch wants to settle Bethesda lawsuit with a Quake deathmatch

Share

>While we haven’t reported on it before now, some of you may have heard that Bethesda has filed a lawsuit against Mojang (the development team behind Minecraft), claiming that the name of Mojang’s upcoming title Scrolls infringes on the Skyrim trademark.

As if Notch (the creator of Minecraft) isn’t already loved enough by PC gamers, he scored even more cool points today by taking to his personal blog and challenging Bethesda to a game of Quake 3 to settle the legal dispute. I love this idea and Bethesda should too, considering they are under the same parent company as id software and should have some pretty skilled Quake players in their ranks.
If Bethesda agrees to this, let’s hope they livestream it. I know I’d watch.

    >Bethesda won't do it. If Mojang get away with using Scrolls, then all the other companies (In the world) have an excuse to the use every name that Bethesda use. So Bethesda pretty much are forced to either get Notch to change the name, or to get the courts to do it.

    >Scrolls does not even infringe on the elder scrolls. Thats like saying anybody that uses AEIOU in their games name is infringing on another games name. Or somebody making a shooter is infringing on COD.

    >Both games are in 8-bit, right?

    >Re Ethan Baker. Scrolls isn't the same as Elder Scrolls, they're different names. That's like saying Call of Juarez are infringing copyrights on the Call of Duty franchise because it has "Call" and "of" in it.

    >@Ethan not necessarily. Bethesda doesn't have to win the court case, they just need to show that they are making an effort to defend it or they will lose it.

    >That is just fucking epic . Notch chose the game well he probably has a few Quake 3 pros in his office .

    Ethan nooo no no I disagree no one is gonna use the names Scroll and The Elders that's just proving you're unoriginal and your content is probably shit.
