mavhc:

That's not the legal obligations he was talking about. He was talking about those in the following quote frm the Castle statement: "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."

It is not referring to the same contractual obligations that ROL allegedly broke, but some additional obligations invoked by license termination. We really need a contract lawyer here.

Also, it doesn't infer that Castle is not granting licenses to ROLs old sub-licensees because it's being nice to ROL. The agreements between VA and ROL and A6 and ROL have already effectively terminated, if not actually terminated. It infers that it's legally unable to grant new licences until ROL complies. You could however argue that in fact Castle is not granting licenses to break their competitors, and blaming ROL while it's at it to cover up - but I don't see any reason to jump to that particular conclusion given the current evidence.
