Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim vs. Scrolls
In today's WTF news, the creator of Minecraft, Markus "Notch" Persson, has come under legal attack from Bethesda recently due to the naming of his studio's (Majong) new game, which is Scrolls. Bethesda considers this too close to their established Elder Scrolls series so they want Notch to change the name of his game and are willing to take him to court over it.

Notch's answer to this? He prefers a multiplayer deathmatch over a legal battle. He has challenged Bethesda to a Quake III 3v3 match, each company chooses one map and highest total frag count wins. If Notch's team wins, then Bethesda drops the lawsuit. If Bethesda wins, then Notch changes the name to something that Bethesda doesn't have a trademark on. 

We support this notion of keeping a petty lawsuit out of the courts and letting the companies settle it like true gamers should-- in a Quake deathmatch. Come on Bethesda, time to man up and accept the challenge.
