Not so good at law and all the legal Jargon. Can someone break it down and explain what it would mean for us gamers if Interplay won?

The original contract becomes null and void, and Interplay get the fallout license back. Bethesda would still have the rights to produce 1 more Fallout game (Due to pre existing contract). Bethesda would also have to pay 16% (I think) of all profits made off FO3 and FONV to Interplay

Thats the short version :)

Bubbles for being helpful.

Should be interesting. 16% is a lot of Moola. Wonder if someone at Bethesda will get the sack if they don't win the case.

If interplay does win then Bethesda will only be able to develop one more Fallout game & interplay will own all rights to Fallout again

Didn't really enjoy the original fallouts, pretty sad they're getting the rights again.
