The Elder Scrolls 6 Redfall Trademark Dispute Settled
Among the titles that triumphantly appeared during last year’s Los Angeles festival, one of the most important is certainly The Elder Scrolls 6, yet another chapter in the popular saga of Bethesda. Despite the fact that this sixth episode is still very little known, having been shown only a simple and fleeting trailer, the fans immediately went crazy at the time of the announcement.
From Skyrim, fifth episode of the saga, in fact almost 8 years have already passed, a really long period of time that nothing else has done but increase the already per-se high expectation for the title. Among the enthusiastic fans, however, a controversy arose, which also went through the courts, for The Elder Scrolls 6, a dispute concerning the Redfall brand.
On this name, which will probably also be the name of the sixth chapter, a legal dispute had opened between ZeniMax, the company behind Bethesda, and BookBreeze.com, publisher of the writer Jay J. Falconer.
Falconer, in particular, is in fact the author of a series of books entitled Redfall and it is precisely from this fact that the controversy between the two companies arose. Fortunately, everything was resolved in the best way and, through a friendly agreement, Bethesda will be able to use the brand at will for the next chapter of the famous saga.
Unfortunately, there are no further details on the terms of the agreement, as they are confidential, but Bethesda might have probably paid in order to be able to use the term Redfall without future retaliation by BookBreeze.com. All is well that ends well, isn’t it?
What do you think of this news and the Redfall brand? Do you believe it is adequate for the future and highly anticipated title of The Elder Scrolls 6?
