They could make this pay-per-view, stream it live. It's be epic AND promote both sides products

I love Notch.

No. Seriously.

But, also, the industry does need characters like him. They make this kind of bureaucracy far more entertaining.

Bethesda: *click* *click* *click* "They're not dead yet! They're glitching!" *click* *click* *click*

Mojang: "This isn't Oblivion. You have to aim the reticle at the thing you want to die."

Bethesda: *Rage quit* *Lawsuit*

... Bethesda owns iD

... iD made Quake

... What's stopping Bethesda (or rather, ZeniMax) from sending the iD guys to represent them?

Never going to happen big companies don't like to play fair or to have a sense of decency they also don't like getting there hands dirty thats why they use lawyers there is a name for people like that.

oh yeah "SPIN LESS"

Its a shame its really good press for both companies. Especially since theres no chance in hell a judge is gonna side with bethesda.

Bethesda has the chance to turn negative press into positive press here and possibly set out to do which has a million to one chance of winning in court.

Either way they gain some koolio points with pc gamers, game journalists, and other developers. Or a chance to trademark a game called scrolls if they win.
