Just a few hours after Notch announced that Minecraft had hit 3 million sales, he tweeted that Bethesda had sic'd lawyers on him:

Quote
Just got a letter from Bethesta's lawyers. They claim "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim.


Really Bethesda? What, just because you trademarked Elder Scrolls doesn't mean you OWN the damn word.


What are you going to do about that? You going to sic lawyers on me too?

Honestly though, I think the only reason that Bethesda is doing this is because of Mojang's success with Minecraft that will no doubt bleed into any other games they make. Heck, if you Googled Scrolls, the first thing to come up is Mojang's game, and then Bethesda's website. I'm sure that burns.

What Bethesda... you jelly? You're not gonna win this one.

I saw this and lolled... another corporate that's bloodthirsty for more money, It makes me laugh because when advertised, the subtitle acts like the slogan, people refer to it as skyrim, not TES5, even fucking bethesda refer to it as skyrim in commentaries i've seen...  actually i don't give two fucks,
Guild Wars 2

Oh, Bethesda. Shame on you. You were such a great company, and then... this. I love Notch, I really do. Each update makes me un-bored from Minecraft for another couple of weeks, that's impressive. But, I still love Bethesda, Oblivion was amazing and Skyrim will just kick ass. I'm just sad they did this.
