More on Scrolls Legal Battle

Kotaku has more on the litigation between Bethesda Softworks and Mojang over the Scrolls name Mojang wants to use for a collectible card game, which Bethesda feel infringes on their trademark for The Elder Scrolls. They hear from Bethesda, Mojang and Bethesda's lawyers in an effort to clarify why such a matter is being taken to court, as Bethesda asserts that unless Mojang drops the use of the word Scrolls entirely, they may be in danger of losing their trademark. They also note that while this battle is headed to court in Sweden, the USPTO has already rejects Mojang's application for a U.S. trademark for Scrolls, though to prevent them from using the name, Bethesda will also have to take them to court in the U.S.

They might as well sue http://www.patches-scrolls.de/ as well. They have only been around for since 1995 so it should be a no-brainer for the Bethesda Lawyers.

They could also sue whoever currently owns the Dead Sea Scrolls for infringement as well. Make them change the name to the Dead Sea Papyrus.
