Blalock who is the creator of an unofficial SkyRim application for the iPhone called Dragon Shout received a legal note from the lawyers of creators of Skyrim, Bethesda. The lawyers requested that Blalock remove the application from the iOS App Store because of “copyright infringement”. According to Blalock, the request from the lawyers came with neither a ‘cease & desist notice” nor an explanation as to how his application violated any copyrights. A quick check on the App Store shows us that the application is still ‘live’ so it seems that Blalock is sticking to his guns and refusing to take down his application for now.
He said, “I did my best to ensure the app was not violating anything. 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.” Since it hasn’t been removed from the App Store just yet combined with the fact that it is free for download, you can get Dragon Shout from the iTunes App Store by just clicking here.
