Bethesda has a trademark on the Elder Scrolls franchise. It doesn't really have much to do with scrolls, per se. Their overzealous attorneys are attempting to "cease and desist" Notch's next game Scrolls, which presumably is about scrolls. This is insane. Nobody is going to mistake a big budget open world RPG with a low rent indie project. Does this mean that nobody else can make a game entitled "Elder"? They might as well pursue trademark enforcement if somebody uses any combination of the letters in Elder Scrolls, like "Cell Lords Res". (That's kind of a neat anagram, actually.)
Here's Notch's response to the complaint.
Please vote or email me on whether Direman Press ought to Facebook or Google+. Thanks!
