diomus: That URL refers me to "past on-going disputes". When I move on to locate and read Drobe articles referenced there, I get "Castle conference transcript online", which offers nothing useful.

I then re-trace my steps, and try "Castle spills beans on ROL dispute".

I assume that is the Drobe article to which you refer. It mentions ROL failure to pass code back to Castle as only the third of three concerns. (My understanding is that failure to pay license fees was the primary, if not sole concern - I'm sure anyone can work out why failure to pay license fees might be a concern of the head license owner).

The article concerned is [link]

If so, it would've saved me both time and typing if you'd given that URL to begin with.

As far as I can see, that Drobe article doesn't suggest that RISCOS Ltd were asking for a "new license", but rather that Castle were keen for them to follow the terms of *any* agreed license.

One almost begins to wonder what it was that delayed RISCOS Ltd's programmers from doing their work.
