That doesn't follow. The situation is obviously ambiguous. Castle have some sort of right to use 3.7 on the desktop. They obviously have the view the 5 is based on 3.8. Obviously ROL didn't see it that way.

Unless ROL also though it was a good idea.

Surely were there no leg to stand on, the product would never have got back on the market?
