Elder Scrolls vs Notch's Scrolls?

Alleges Minecraft-maker Notch on Twitter: "Just got a letter from Bethesda's lawyers. They claim "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim."

No way/what/how/why/whatwhatwhat? What? Hopefully this is just crossed wires, an overzealous lawyer acting alone, a weird joke or othewise not actually happening. We've asked Bethesda for a statement. Let's wait for more information before we decide we know what's going on: if it is as it appears, good grief. If it isn't, phew. More as we have it, anyway.

Update more on the matter from Notch, plus a photograph of the legal notice (in Swedish, but I'll take Notch's word for it that it's what he says it is). Seems to be real, then. Sadface. WORLD, YOU ARE SO VERY CRUEL.
