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.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
