[ 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!

And NMA sources everything to Ausir because they'll be damned if they give you, and us by extension, any credit.

I found NMA before I found you guys back in 2005, I lurked there for a while, then I found you guys late '06 and the rest is history. I'm glad it turned out that way. NMA is sycophantic groupthink.

Thanks Ausir and King of Creation.


I know you're all a bunch of cockgobbling morons over here, but I would assume basic reading ability was still a requisite.

Interplay's SEC filings are in my newsfeed, tho'. Just sayin', it's hardly breaking news icon_crazy

*shrugs* Not really, I don't read DaC, so I only see news from here when KoC tips me, which he does, and I thank him for that.

You guys and Ausir are ahead on this stuff because none of the NMA staff seems to feel like researching it, and we don't get the court docs, probably because we made fun of the Interplay stockholders. Once again, DaC cockgobbling pays off icon_chew Good thing you guys could practice annalingus on Pete Hines so long, you got good at it icon_lalala

Too true. Duck and Cover? More like Fairytale Magic Land of Butthurt Princesses, amirite?

(anyone who actually thinks any of this, including Pooper's posts, is serious is a fucking retard, by the way)

This shows you lack quality of character. Also, what the fuck? There's an achievement system for posting on NMA now? What are you guys, retarded? How do you see the keyboard to type with your cocks in each others mouths all the time?

You just pay enough attention to know when your inferiority is pointed out, right? And of course NMA doesn't have access to the same information as DAC, because NMA is a mass-market, ego-driven clusterfuck who appeals to people who think they are sophisticated when they are not.

In short, NMA is to DAC what Fallout 3 is to Fallout 1. Go shove a broken bottle in your ass and sit on it.

Oh God.

OH GOD.

How could I be so blind?!

HOW COULD I NOT SEE THIS TRUISM?!

Please allow me to delete NMA and merge all its content into DaC's system. Or better yet delete it, make the frontpage refer to DaC and forget it ever existed, for verily it is but a shadow of ritualized performative acts to DaC's engendering constative acts!

OH WOE IS ME!!!!!

Kharn I know you lurk in the shadows with your big buck teeth sticking out your mouth waiting for the right moment to pop out and steal our shit and say that you never read the forums.

The matter of the fact is that you never cite DAC you only site our original source which means you are guilty of plagiarism according to MLA and the APA association of internet posting news and stuff.

You used the word constative wrong and while you were sarcastic, you failed to be funny. Of course, given that you are no stranger to failure, I'm not surprised.

In summary, you can suck my balls.

No, that was just Kharn being original. There were no sarcastic rants to plagiarize.

Roofles. Why do you lie? Perhaps you need to read up on modern discourse analysis, starting with John Austin's authoritative work on performative and constative acts. OHLOLZ. PWNT!

You want me to try again, ergo you want me to post more, ergo you love me.

I knew it.
