The only thing that I can find is that Bethesda is the sole owner of anything with the name Fallout or a concept derived from the game universe. So, I agree with you that Bethesda must have some amazingly inept lawyers.
The right to distribute the pre-existing Fallout games is covered in the Asset Purchase Agreement, while the license to develop the MMO is covered in the Trademark License Agreement.
