That's where Bethesda dropped the ball. Fallout wasn't just a setting, it had a tight rules system too. Just like D&D isn't just a setting. Bethesda doesn't like the restrictions that real RPG systems impose on their ADD addled target audience - Cimmerian

Interplay Files 8K - Claims Victory In Court
Interplay Files 8K - Claims Victory In Court [ Company -> Update ]

More info on Company: Bethesda v. Interplay

Interplay has finally come out and officially admitted that they defeated Bethesda in the court case. DAC had reported on this a few days ago, but neither of the companies commented until today. IPLY filed an 8K form with the SEC yesterday, making a short statement about the court case. They also indicate that they are still aiming for more:

On December 10, 2009, the Hon. Deborah K. Chasanow, Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland denied a Motion for Preliminary Injunction filed by Bethesda Softworks LLC ("Bethesda") against Interplay seeking to stop Interplay from selling FALLOUT(R), FALLOUT(R) 2, FALLOUT(R) Tactics, and FALLOUT(R) Brotherhood of Steel and to prevent Interplay from creating a FALLOUT(R)-branded massively-multiplayer online game prior to a trial and final determination on the merits. Interplay will continue to defend its rights and pursue its Counter-Claims against Bethesda, including its claims for Breach of Contract, Tortious Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage, Rescission, Accounting and Declaratory Relief seeking an award of damages and other relief.

It's probably going to be a long wait until there's anything resembling an end to this fight. Stay tuned to DAC for continuing updates!
