Notch's Q3A Scrolls Challenge

Mow married Minecraft creator Notch has updated his blog with word that he wants to settle the legal battle with Bethesda over use of the title Edge Scrolls for Mojang's next project the old-fashioned way, in a QUAKE III Arena deathmatch:

The only negative thing going on at this moment is the Scrolls trademark lawsuit nonsense, and I think I came up with the perfect solution:

Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, letís do that instead! I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, you select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins.

If we win, you drop the lawsuit.

If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something youíre fine with.

Regardless of the outcome, we could still have a small text somewhere saying our game is not related to your game series in any way, if you wish.

I am serious, by the way.

You meant Mojang's being complete asshats for trying to trademark the word "Scrolls"?

How do you figure?

If Mojang was trying to use "The Elder Scrolls", you might have a point, but "Scrolls" as a title doesn't, to my mind, garner anything from Elder Scrolls...

What's next, they sue anyone with 'the' in the title?
