In the instance of Mojang, Bethesda are paranoid that the use of 'Scrolls' will have legal ramifications on their use of the same word in their licensing.

This is ridiculous, though - Mojang can't stop anyone using "Scrolls", because it's a commonly used term - just like Microsoft couldn't trademark "Windows" (which is why they changed it to "Vista"), and Tim Langdell couldn't sue EA for calling their game "Mirror's Edge".

There seems to be pretty well established precedent on this, but Bethesda are pursuing Mojang anyway - seems kinda douchey.
