To nunfetishist (1): You ask "Out of interest, why does CTL need ROL to acknowledge the breaches?"

Well in their statement Castle wrote "However, ROL has refused to comply with the legal obligations placed on them by the licence termination and until it does so, Castle is unable to grant new licences to these sub-licensees.". I don't know the legal aspects applicable here but to me it seems that either ROL has to acknowledge the termination or the termination has to be approved by court perhaps before it is really officially terminated so that Castle is allowed to grant the new licenses.

To nunfetishist (2): You worry about domination of the market? True there is a risk, but - sorry - in the old days when Acorn dominated the market there was much more around and going on in the RISC OS market and Acorn World was really a show worth a visit from the Continent. So there seem to be good sides to this concept and time has to show how it works.

To all: I'll not add that I think Castle did the right thing since a) who am I to know, though it looks right and b) I rather avoid being labelled pro-Castle by the odd one here, though it looks that they do things right :-)
