Scrolls trademark settled

Mojang announces that the lawsuit with Bethesda over the “Scrolls” trademark is settled. They say that they are allowed to keep the name of the game as Scrolls, but will not keep the trademark. Bethesda says:

ZeniMax has licensed the ‘Scrolls’ mark to Mojang to be used solely in conjunction with its existing Scrolls digital card game and any add-on material it makes to that game. The terms of the settlement bar Mojang from using the Scrolls mark for any sequel to the current card game, or any other video game.

Bethesda threatens Scrolls

Game publisher Bethesda sends Notch a 15-page letter threatening to sue Mojang if the name of Scrolls is not changed because it conflicts with their trademark, “The Elder Scrolls”. Notch says that he does not believe they have a strong case because scrolls, though the word is in the name, are not a focal point of the marketing or theme of the game:

Today, I got a 15 page letter from some Swedish lawyer firm, saying they demand us to stop using the name Scrolls, that they will sue us (and have already paid the fee to the Swedish court), and that they demand a pile of money up front before the legal process has even started. I assume this is all some more or less automated response to us applying for the trademark.

Scrolls announced

Announcement

Notch announces Scrolls, Mojang’s second game, a digital collectible card game that is developed by Jakob Porser, not Notch:

I figure most people reading this blog cares mostly about Minecraft development, so let me just say that I won’t be involved in the day to day development of Scrolls. Jakob, one of the guys I started Mojang with, is developing it, and has been since we started the company.
