Mojang can use the name ‘Scrolls’ for their upcoming game, at least for the time being.
Markus Perrson’s, aka Notch, tweets read:
“We won the interim injunction! We can keep using the name “Scrolls”. Zenimax/Bethesda can still appeal the ruling, but I’m very happy.”
A follow up tweet reads:
“I am very happy. :) We never meant to infringe on anything Bethesda does, and this means we didn’t. :D I love those guys.”
This lawsuit came about when Bethesda tried to sue Mojang over the use of the name ‘Scrolls’ as a game title.
Apparently consumers would get confused between The Elder Scrolls series and Mojang’s Scrolls game. When the news of the lawsuit first broke Mojang had said that the case “would set a bad example for the industry.”
