Scrolls Will Be Scrolls

The Mojang Website announces the lawsuit over whether Mojang's could name a game Scrolls in light of Bethesda Softworks' trademark for The Elder Scrolls. It turns out they will use the name, but are not challenging the trademark, which sounds like it was an amicable solution:

We have settled the lawsuit over Scrolls and Mojang and Bethesda are friends again.

To answer the big question – yes Scrolls is still going to be called Scrolls.

To answer the second question – we aren’t going to keep the trade mark.

For us this was never about a trade mark but being able to use Scrolls as the name of our game which we can – Yey.

He's spreading his company too thin with too many projects at once that aren't minecraft related (minecraft is a very successful IP for him, but if he doesn't exploit it, it doesn't do him much good in the future).

The mobile phone version of Minecraft costs $7 and sold a million copies in the past three months, the Xbox version of Minecraft is probably going to sell as well as the PC version has for $10-15 when it comes out in the next month or two when it pioneers free, frequent updates on the XBLA... What else do you want them to do? Minecraft PC is still pulling in 3-4 hundred thousand dollars per DAY, they have plenty of freedom to branch out with that kind of income alone.
