Haters Gonna Hate
Looks like Notch and crew (creator of Minecraft) got themselves into a little hot water with their new game Scrolls. Bethesda lawyers sent them a letter saying "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark, and could be confused for their game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim." Notch tweeted about it here. Let's just hope that Bethesda's lawyers are just being lawyers and don't plan to actually pursue this obviously overreaching "infringement." Scrolls is a pretty broad word. Let's hope they don't decide they want to send letters to all of the platformers, since they're side-SCROLLing games, too.
