More Legal Fallout

The Fallout Wiki has excerpts from another round of court documents related to the ongoing legal action between Bethesda and Interplay over the rights to the Fallout franchise, as Interplay continues to pursue development of Fallout Online. Here's bit of their summary: "Among other things, Interplay asserts that 'Bethesda has breached its agreements with Interplay by refusing to allow Interplay the right to use the Fallout related intellectual property assets'. However, Bethesda lawyers now claim that when Interplay licensed the rights to develop and publish Fallout Online from Bethesda back in 2007, it actually never had the rights to use any elements of the Fallout universe and Fallout games aside from the title Fallout itself." Thanks Acleacius via rpg codex.

Why are people mad at Interplay here?
Because Interplay needs to die, painfully. Followed by a round of rocks dropped on it from orbit, followed by 10 days of nuclear bombing.

Interplay deserves to die, and the ashes. Well we need to make sure there's nothing left of them.

Interplay offered Bethesda the rights to the MMO, told them it would be worth a lot of money, Bethesda said no. Now they realized Interplay was right (Fallout sells like crazy even if it is a buggy disaster) and now Bethesda wants the MMO rights for free.
