Bethesda's Fallout MMO Injunction Appeal Denied

The United States Court of Appeals has denied an appeal by Bethesda Softworks of the recently denied attempt for a preliminary injunction to halt development of the Fallout MMOG they claim Interplay has forfeited rights to develop. Joystiq has a copy of the legal documents showing development of the contentious game may continue.

This is such a ridiculous shakedown. We all know Interplay can't possibly pull this off. However, Bethsoft F'd themselves in the A with a terrible agreement because they thought they could get the IP on the cheap. By the time this is all said and done it will probably have been cheaper for Bethsoft to have just paid them off in the first place, finished the game itself and put it out there. Instead they're wasting years that could have been used to produce this game so there's all those potential lost sales and revenue as well as all the money wasted on these legal shenanigans. SHENANIGANS!
