Notch to Bethesda: let’s settle trademark row with Quake 3

Full of joie de vivre following his recent nuptials, Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has suggested his Mojang studio and Bethesda settle their legal differences in the most unusual of fashions. Earlier this month, Bethesda’s lawyers wrote to Mojang demanding that it not name its next game Scrolls, arguing that it infringes its Elder Scrolls trademark. “I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3,” Persson writes on his blog. “Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. If we win, you drop the lawsuit. If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you’re fine with. I am serious, by the way.”
