[Gameinformer] Bethesda Lawyers After Fallout Fan Site

post #1 of 132
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Erling Andersen loved Fallout so much he started his own website where he offered Fallout-style posters for fans to download for free. Bethesda did not appreciate this.

Andersen said he registered the domain name Fallout-posters.com last December, only to have Bethesda lawyers contact him weeks later asking for the website to be taken down and for the website name to be handed over.

Source

Erling Andersen explains the situation himself in his blog.

I don't understand why they went after him with their full legal team. If he was selling their work I could understand, but he wasn't. I guess I couldn't take a screenshot in game and turn it into a poster for myself?

Not sure where this is headed.

In Australia it would be settled over a beer and everyone would be friends. Too many precious people around it seems...

Bethesda: We want our cut of the free promotion thing you've got going there.
*turns towards internet user*
Bethesda: We're coming after you too. We know you've been taking screenshots, using them as wallpapers and sharing them with friends.

Hey Bethesda, I still respect your company but keep this up and I'll add you to my EA list. Mind you, I haven't bought a EA game in over 2 years.

Not cool. Sending a legal team after a fan that did nothing wrong.
