At PAX Prime in Seattle, Markus "Notch" Persson and his studio Mojang have built a neat "Minecraft Museum" where they're displaying memorabilia and art from their hit PC game. But they've also got something a bit feistier on display.

In a humorous bit of nose-thumbing, Persson and co. have framed and put on display what appears to be the original letter sent to them from Elder Scrolls-maker Bethesda threatening legal action over the name of Mojang's game Scrolls.

You can see the letter above, and if you're at PAX (and can read Swedish), swing by and read it.

What is with people's hate on Notch? Take away what you think of a game you say is "overrated" or anything about Minecraft. Why do some of you hate him? He was responsible for one of the Humble Bundles, which made lots of money for charity. And even a few days ago there was a fundraiser which was donations to Child's Play ( Which raised $75,000). So he's often raising fundraisers to give to charity, he is a pretty nice guy, and he listens to his fans. I'm not seeing some greedy, wannabe guy. He's also a pretty funny/cool dude, such as if he it $75,000 he would shave his beard off! How are any of you doing more than he is? Why are you hating?
