nonono Scrolls is a carbon copy of TES because it has mountains and Skyrim has mountains

^
summarized quote of why bethesda is suing (they actually said that they are too similar because of mountains)

also glad the ruling came soon so Bethesda didn't keep wasting Notch's money

i always thought this was a douche move and they should have accepted the scrolls producers challenge to the out of court gamer match that would have been awesome

As long as the release of Skyrim is unhindered, I am perfectly happy.

Yesh, a very stupid court case. Apparently it's required that a trademark owner sue someone that treads near their trademark because if they don't, they might lose their trademark.

The Elder Scrolls isn't even the first game to use the word scrolls in it's name.

The Magnetic Scrolls Collection is the earliest game I could find with the word scrolls in it but that doesn't mean it's the first.
