I'm gonna make a game called Craft and the Mine. Ill make it a FPS ;)

And because Notch is decent, he wont sue me over the name ;)

I'm a huge Bethesda fan, but I think this makes them look bad. Going after an indie developer because they think they own the word 'Scrolls'. Clearly no one would ever confuse the two games, they are completely and unmistakably different. Kind of a dick move if you ask me (I'm aware you did not ask me).

Going after the little guy just cause they can.... Fack off with that. Having said that, I cannot wait for Skyrim.

What about a game called The, Elder or The Elder?

I'll make one (it'll suck) and when Bethesda sue me I will laugh in their face.

If they make any case out of this at all I am sure they will be thoroughly DDoSsed.

No one will really know whats going on until both sides have made full statements and sat down to talk it through. As Notch has said it could just be lawyers being lawyers.

Bethesda may think they've built up a solid case, but I'm sure Notch will take it apart piece by piece.

Logic will take tear this apart. Bethesda is foolish to do this.
