Minecraft's Notch Challenges Bethesda To A Quake 3 Duel Over Notch, the creator of Minecraft has thrown down the Quake 3 gauntlet. He is currently in the midsts of legal battle with Bethesda over his next game "Scrolls." Bethesda's lawyers sent him a letter claiming "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark, "The Elder Scrolls." They fear people will confuse Notch's game with Skyrim. Give us gamers some credit, Bethesda.

Notch, whose real name is Markuss Persson, has proposed a way to solve this problem: a fight to the death.

"Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, let’s do that instead!

I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, you select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins.

If we win, you drop the lawsuit.

If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you’re fine with."

In case you were wondering if he was serious, Notch concluded with "I am serious, by the way." 

I personally think more lawsuits should be settled out of court and in the Quake arena, but maybe I'm in the minority. I also think Bethesda should ease up on the lawsuits. There isn't a reason to believe The Elder Scroll's 5: Skyrim will be confused with Scrolls. No one abreviates The Elder Scrolls as Scrolls anyway. Furthermore, Monty Python didn't sue them for infringing on their trademark of "Elder Berries." Game. Set. Match.
