[ Company -> Update ] - More info on Company: Bethesda v. Interplay

Looks like Frymuchan spoke too soon, and he has sent us an update to clarify some things about our recent report that Bethesda and Interplay had settled their case. Here's what Frymuchan had to say:

Well, looks like Bethesda and Interplay are still fighting. below is Interplay's filing from today. only thing off the table, at this point, is the preliminary injunction. Makes me think a deal is forthcoming, but both parties still have a gun pointed at the other's head. Interplay's gun, you owe me royalties along with the license and Bethesda's gun, you lose all rights to MMORPG and previous Fallout games.

Here's the filing:

If Bethesda loses the counter-suit the rights for fallout would revert back to Interplay.
