Mojang and Zenimax Settle 'Scrolls' Lawsuit

Also available for : PC

Today Zenimax Media, parent company of Bethesda Software, announced in a press release that it has settled its lawsuit with developer Mojang over use of the name "Scrolls."<br/><br/>The lawsuit spawned after Mojang announced that its card-based battle game would be called Scrolls, prompting Zenimax to <a target="_blank" href="http://pc.ign.com/articles/120/1200949p1.html" target="_blank">file a lawsuit last year</a> due to the name similarity to The Elder Scrolls. After <a target="_blank" href="http://pc.ign.com/articles/120/1200949p1.html" target="_blank">winning the initial round in court</a>, it appears the two companies must have met and decided to settle rather than drag out the fight.<br/><br/>Under the agreement, Zenimax will retain ownership of the 'Scrolls' trademark. Mojang doesn't have to change the name of its upcoming card-based game, though, as Zenimax has "licensed the 'Scrolls' mark to Mojang to be used solely in conjunction with its existing Scrolls digital card game and any add-on material it makes to that game." The press release also stated that this does not grant them permission to use the name for any sequels. <br/><br/><br><br><br/><br/>&#169;2012-03-12, IGN Entertainment, Inc. All Rights Reserved
