Bethesda is sueing a small/indie game company named Mojang (popular for their Minecraft game) over the title of their latest game (Scrolls), saying that it's too similar to Bethesda's games (The Elder Scrolls). Mojang founder wants to challenge Bethesda to a duel to settle the issue.

Quote:
"Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie?" Persson wrote on his blog Wednesday. "Well, let’s do that instead [of going to court]! I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake III. 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."


Although, Quake III may be a bad choice since Bethesda owns id Software. A day later, he had this to say:

Quote:
"If it came to a Quake III tournament, I have a feeling we just might have to change the name," Persson told Wired.com, noting that Bethesda owns the brand and has several professional Quake players on its payroll. "In retrospect, Quake III might have been a poor choice."


Hopefully Bethesda agrees to this. Even if Mojang loses, it would be an awesome way to settle this.

Actually, going for a duel will give Bethesda a lot of street credit and publicity. Probably better than fighting it out in court!
