Bethesda & Interplay Settle Fallout Lawsuit?

Duck and Cover reports a settlement in the ongoing legal dispute between Bethesda Softworks and Interplay over Interplay's rights to make a Fallout MMORPG after selling the rights to the RPG series to Bethesda. This comes by way of an observer at the court proceedings, and while they have no word on the actual outcome, they say details on the settlement are expected at some point this month.

I just want to see details of the settlement, cause I'm not really sure who to root for in this grudge match.

As best as I can tell, there's two likely possibilities:

1) Zenimax gives Interplay a chunk of cash in exchange for the Fallout MMO rights and backs off of their suits regarding how Interplay was selling legacy Fallout titles.

2) Zenimax gives the Caen brothers a larger chunk of cash and simply take Interplay out from under them.
