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.

Also in point to Devs "Also, at least half his money went away to taxes." How do you know that? Are you just saying Sweden(?) has a flat %50 tax rate with no rebates for company cost i.e. buying more things/hiring workers?

If he is not putting each and every dollar of his profit into his personal bank account but is still part of his company (worth alot, but not a realized return) he could well be paying way less taxes than you say.

Do you have a good understanding of his taxes or do you just think that?
Easy enough to figure out, since he did a big chunk of it before becoming a company, and last I checked, personal income tax in Sweden is about that much split between employer and employee (in this case he was self employed).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxation_in_Sweden
I see a 48.3% rate on that webpage.

IANAL, and you are free to spend the time to research it more exactly if you like. I feel reasonably confidant in my educated guess.
In addition, sweden also has a VAT tax of 25%. From those 2 numbers, a picture of a fairly high tax burden is evident.

Incidentally, the 14k copies per day is impressive, I knew sales were still good, but didn't know it was still that high. Doesn't change my opinion though that mojang should be working on something else minecraft for PC such as DLC or expansions or minecraft 2.
