Bethesda has allegedly sent Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson a legal note claiming that the name of his new game infringes on its trademark.
The Nordic developer wrote on Twitter moments ago:
"Just got a letter from Bethesta's [sic] lawyers. They claim "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim."
[Update: Notch has added: "I still <3 Bethesda. This is hopefully just lawyers being lawyers."]
Scrolls is being created by Notch's Mojang Specifications studio. The title is a fantasy strategy game that is built on mechanics similar to collectible card games.
Meanwhile, Bethesda's beautiful, monster RPG Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is due for release in November.
