+ - Bethesda send cease & desist to Fallout P&

Submitted by soccerisgod
soccerisgod (585710) writes "After previously forcing ReplacementDocs to take down manuals for their games (some of which can be downloaded free of charge from their own website) games maker Bethesda Softworks is now threatening legal action against Glutton Creeper Games who are currently working on a Fallout-based pen & paper RPG. Glutton Creeper Games claims to have a valid contract with Interplay, while Bethesda Softworks claims that "Interplay never had the rights to license a Pen and Paper to GCG under their license of Fallout from 2004 before the purchase of the IP, and makes claims against GCG that it may damage the Fallout brand and forecoming Fallout 3 release by linking the two."

Is our friendly neighbourhood games company turning into the next EA?"
