Furthermore, Interplay must enter "full-scale" development of the MMO with a minimum of $30 million in funding by two years from the signing of the agreement, or it immediately forfeits its rights to the license.

The MMO "must meet or exceed such quality standards as may be set by Bethesda from time to time" ..provided two days notice is given
The first point I've already commented on that "full scale development" is a vague point and could be interepreted as anything. The $30 million issue would be the obvious interpretation and I would guess then "full scale development" would be meaningless if that number could be shown on paper.

Its the second point that is really the clincher. This rider can and does supersede anything else written on the contract.

Angry Gamers doesn't seem to get some important things here: Interplay signed the agreement; they took the money.
