Pixbits – Junk Jack developers – have been contacted by Mojang’s lawyers for copyright infringements

That’s hilarious. Pixbits have informed us that Mojang’s lawyers have contacted them for copyright infringements. Little is known about the reasons of it, but it seems that the word ‘Minecraft’ was enough to get this indie studio into trouble. According to Notch himself, this could be because Pixbits might have used the “minecraft” trademark somewhere in their game description. Seriously now? Getting into trouble for using the word “minecraft”? Seems the whole Bethesda thing had a – negative – impact on Mojang after all.
It appears that Pixbits used the word “minecraft” in their keywords at Apple’s App Store. As the company revealed later on:
“Yes, we had the Minectaft word just in keywords, we are requesting to Apple to remove it right now.”
The company is trying to remove that word from their keywords, so here is hoping that everything will work out.
Junk Jack is a 2D sandbox game where you can explore, build your home and survive in random procedurally generated worlds full of monsters, treasures and hidden secrets. Think of it as a Terraria clone for iOS devices.
