Notch: Mojang Offered "To Give Up the Trademark" for Scrolls

The Word of Notch offers a "short response" to some criticism in an editorial on Kotaku based on the recent release of legal documents related to the court battle over the Scrolls trademark. He explains that Mojang actually offered to give up the trademark, but Bethesda seems determined to go to court nonetheless:

I just saw this:

I feel the need to clarify a couple of things:

We realized we should apply for the trademark “Minecraft” to protect our brand. When doing so, we also sent in an application for “Scrolls”. When Bethesda contacted us, we offered both to change the name to “Scrolls: <some subtitle>” and to give up the trademark.

They refused on both counts.

Whatever reason they have for suing us, it’s not a fear of us having a trademark on the word “Scrolls”, as we’ve offered to give that up.

I wish this whole thing would just go away. It was out of left field, so to speak, to begin with. Notch doesn't come across as doing this intentionally by any stretch of the imagination, in my view.

Just keep making Minecraft, Notch, stick to finishing what you started there...
