I imagine this has already been discussed somewhere but when I tried to use the forum search button, it didn't give me results matching the criteria I searched, so I must be using it wrong. I was reading about the back and forth legal battles between Bethesda and Interplay over the rights to produce the MMO, as well as a larger battle over the rights to the Fallout IP. Seemed like Bethesda was losing, badly, every time they faced off in court. At one point it says that Bethesda was in danger of losing rights to Fallout completely due to breach of contract. Then suddenly they reach an out of court cash settlement and things are like they are today. I don't understand why Interplay would agree to a cash settlement if they were winning.
