    Just remember it's Zenimax, not Bethesda.

    Wouldn't it just be awesome if someone from SEGA sued Bethesda over RAGE and Streets of Rage? Surely Bethesda knows that no matter who wins this, it's a big waste of money... But then again, maybe that's their intention...?

    I do wonder what will happen. I don't think anything significant, but it is odd to see this going this far. I was kind of hoping it would lose traction once it went public and people noticed the whole thing was sort of headscratch-worthy.

    What about the fact that this court case is going to use tax money? Now Im Canadian so I somewhat don't care but still.

    This should have been settled with a game of Quake 4, like Notch suggested.

    I promise you that 95% of the... um... "people" complaining about Bethesda being evil and all that idiocy don't have a clue as to the legal difference between "trademark" and "copyright"... Here's a hint: That's a *HINT* to do some research before your knee jerks anymore. Notch knows *EXACTLY* what he's doing and he knows that Bethesda has completely solid and appropriate legal ground here. It's all marketing.

    OMG IM TOTALLY NOT GONNA BUY SKYRIM BECAUSE OF THIS INSIGNIFICANT LEGAL PROCEEDING. ahahahahahah who gives a f--k if people are pissed. Skyrim is still gonna do great. Why? Because it is created by Bethesda, and every game that Bethesda has individually crafted in the past 5 years has been pure gold. PURE GOLD I SAY and cmon gamesradar, Im not allowed to swear?

    This has nothing to do with Skyrim. Skyrim will kick ass yes, but their going out of their way to try and trample a small company for shiztlez and giggles. Its Mojang thats the worry. Mojang is very generous and level headed small company, headed by a very generous and level headed guy (Notch), who have done no wrong by anyone ever, yet Zenimax is riding their ass. -How good Skyrim is going to be has nothing to do with this.

    My comment was directed to Online warriors who are complaining about Zenimax and their lawsuit. 1) This lawsuit gives huge free advertising for "Scrolls" 2) Zenimax had no choice but to sue. If they didn't protect their trademark as a precedent, then any company would be able to use that as a foothold in grabbing their intellectual property. Yes Scrolls is not a huge infringement on the name, but legal precedent holds up in court, therefore needs to sue. 3) There will be no cash settlements in the case. Only a name change by Mojang. Neither game has grossed any money yet,therefore, it is impossible for them to claim damages.

    And they call Activision/EA evil empires...

    This is definitely foolish but I do agree with augdog. This will definitely at least bring in some publicity for Scrolls.

    What Bethesda is doing is retarded. There is absolutely nothing to gain from this for them. All they are doing is tarnishing their own image and giving Notch free advertising. By all rights the judge should laugh this garbage out of court.

    i just dont get it. like at all. the people the scorlls game is marketed to arent stupid enought to get it confused with skyrim. of course this is just assuming that scrolls graphic's wont be as good as skyrims and closer to minecraft. so anyone who actually knows games would actually not be that thick
  • McSpermie - September 27, 2011 11:29 p.m.

    Seems like a lose lose situation to me for Bethesda. Either they lose the case, or they lose respect from their fans for forcing a small developer to change a game title simply because they can. A shame.

    This is SofaKing retarded...

    Notch probably likes the attention to his new game anyway. he'll probably end up making more money on it from people who wouldn't have heard about it until now. He is probably thanking Bethesda behind their backs.
