Exactly who is to say that CTL aren't spouting a lot of crap here? What right do they have to terminate ROL's licence? Maybe they're just causing trouble and hoping that smaller companies won't have the money to fight them? Everyone's been super-quick to kick ROL in the teeth, despite ROL being the one keeping things ticking over since Acorn went kaput! CTL's done little other than acquire (however dubiously) RISC OS from Pace - I see them as a pure moneygrabbing outfit that doesn't put the community and users first. They refuse to give any details of WHAT parts of any ROL agreement they believe has been breached. Talk is cheap. Details from CTL are vastly vague. Lawyers are evil and bloodsucking and the only result is pain and suffering for everyone concerned. Certainly around here CTL have caused themselves irreperable damage by making this crazy move and a considerable number of businesses and large amount of money will be wasted over all this. It's an awful way for this great OS to end up.
