the creator of minecraft is being sued after he filled a patent for a name for a future game called "scrolls".

Bethesda's lawyer called Markus "Notch" Persson shortly after stating concern over this sounding similar to their series elder scrolls.

he stated,"The implication that you could own the right to all individual words within a trademark is also a bit scary," he says. "We looked things up and realized they didn't have much of a case, but we still took it seriously. Nothing about Scrolls is meant to in any way derive from or allude to their games." Time passed, and he heard nothing more on the subject until today, when he received a 15-page letter today from Bethesda's legal council threatening a lawsuit if he doesn't stop all use of the name "Scrolls." he then later added that he likes bethesda's work and is sad over this dispute.
