Fus ro dah!

Bethesda parent ZeniMax has issued the developer of Dragon Shout, a popular map app for Skryim, a notice of copyright infringement.

Dragon Shout creator 'Blalock' told TouchArcade Apple has not asked him to remove the app since "ZeniMax didn't specify what the app is specifically violating."

"I did my best to ensure the app was not violating anything," he said. "I looked up US trademarks and copyrights for 'Dragon Shout' and at the time there wasn't any. I had the map hand drawn. I intentionally didn't use any graphics or wording that would possibly be owned by Bethesda. So, I'm still not sure what they say the app violates."

ZeniMax's legal team is notorious for being protective of its IPs - and a little bit litigious too. Last year it got into a dispute with Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson over his new game 'Scrolls'.
