I think this is a total waste of money and wish they'd taken Mojang up on that offer to play a game for it.
Can anyone point to any comment, prior to this lawsuit nonsense, where someone actually referred to any game or the series as just "scrolls"? In all the comments over this, not one person has done that. And it's a huge internet, so someone, somewhere has probably done that. But everyone I know will say Elder Scrolls or ES or TES or Morrowind or what have you.
I'm not sure many people would realise what you meant if you asked "Do you like the Scrolls games?", whereas s/Scrolls/Elder Scrolls/ and you'd have much higher recognition. I might try asking a few people and seeing how it actually works out, but IMO the names are sufficiently distinct as to not cause confusion.
Thanks for the clarification.
