MineCon 2011: Bethesda Lawsuit Not Hampering Development on Scrolls
GameFront is on the scene at MineCon 2011, and during the Q&A period of tonight’s Mojang Panel, our on-site writers Ross Lincoln and Dave Moss asked the Scrolls developers if the lawsuit Bethesda had filed against the use of the name “Scrolls” has caused a roadblock. From the sound of it, things are full steam ahead for our favorite indie developer.
Q: Scrolls–Has the lawsuit with Bethesda affected anything? Will you have you change the name? Is everything ok with that?
A: Well, define “ok.” The lawsuit doesn’t really affect us, so no. We keep working on the game. It hasn’t delayed the game. We actually won the first instance. So for now the name of “Scrolls” is safe.
Mojang won one battle, but the legal war isn’t over. However, the developers asserted that “We do the developing; the lawyers do the lawyering,” so development on the upcoming title will continue unfettered.
