The Name Game: Inside The “Scrolls” Case

Jim Rossignol: As you are likely already aware, Minecraft-makers Mojang are currently embroiled in the first stage of legal proceedings brought about by The Elder Scrolls-makers Bethesda, in a dispute over whether the name “Scrolls” can be used for the title of the second game. Keen to find out a little more about what it all means, I had a chat with Alex Chapman, an intellectual property lawyer at Sheridans’ Solicitors in London, who is advising on the case. Read on below for some elucidation into what’s going on, and what to watch out for when you are naming your own game. (Industry, Mojang, PC, Scrolls)
