Mojang Wins Scrolls Injunction

Markus 'notch' Persson tweets that Mojang has won the first round of its legal battle with Bethesda Softworks over the Scrolls name that Bethesda claims infringes on their trademark for The Elder Scrolls:

We won the interim injunction! We can keep using the name "Scrolls". ZeniMax/Bethesda can still appeal the ruling, but I'm very happy. :D

I don't see why the Trademark system has to be so ridiculous that someone with a game called "The Elder Scrolls" has to worry about their game if someone wants to make a game called "Scrolls". These trademarks shouldn't overlap. One is a pc card game and one is an RPG? I don't see this being a problem even if notch decided to change the game and make it a First person RPG set in a fantasy realm.

Nobody is going to confuse "Scrolls" with "The Elder Scrolls". Fix the stupid trademark laws so there is no argument about needing to defend your trademark.
