This take the cake for whole another level of stupid. Sorry David Callahan but PutPut Craft is a fan made mod meaning its not officially in Minecraft. Also meaning Mojang does not and has not made any money whatsoever off of it.

This would be like Hasbro trying to sue Bethesda over that My Little Ponies mod.

Knowing Hasbro, I wouldn't be surprised if that did happen.

Maybe its a desperate attempt to get some free publicity, I find it too hard to believe someone would otherwise be this dumb

Didn't see them try and sue MM for the Putt-Putt levels no it was not near as popular so this does seem like a there just trying to get some attention.

lol David Callahan is an idiot, does this guy think that it's DLC that people pay for? I think they're going to damage their reputation to insane amounts if this doesn't get resolved and ends up in court. You know us gamers with our memes. ;)

I modeled my Fallout character after my face, I'm suing Bethesda now having my face in the game.

This is just retarded,because how stupid must you be to sue somone for something they,virtually,technically and otherwise possible have no connection in.Majong did not even touch the mod when it was made,to me it sounds like they want to make quick cash when sueing majong.
