The long running lawsuit filed by Bethesba against Mojang was reported settle this morning by Mojang founder Markus Perrson.
The lawsuit filed in early August of 2011, accused Mojang use of the name “Scrolls” was copyright infringement and would confuse customers between Mojang’s game and Bethesda’s long running action RPG series “Elder Scrolls”.
“The settlement is that we give them the trademark, get to keep the name, and won’t make an Elder Scrolls competitor using the name,” Persson said in a mid-day tweet.
According to the official statement regarding the lawsuit posted on Mojang’s homepage indicates that control over the trademark was not the purpose of the lawsuit. “For us this was never about a trade mark but being able to use Scrolls as the name of our game which we can – Yey.”
