Ian> But at one stage ROL (now this is from memory so feel free to correct me if I am wrong) stated that RISC OS 4 could only be used with ARM hardware (the inference being that it was a condition put down by Pace). Now if that *were* the case then it would have continued to be the case when Castle bought the rights to RISC OS off Pace.

In that instance it would be the use of RISC OS on non-ARM hardware that would constitute the problem (not ROL's selling of RISC OS which would be perfectly valid on ARM based hardware). Mind you the real puzzle is the A75 (which you pointed to yourself), maybe I am getting old but I don't see how that violates it. Unless (perhaps) if one part of the license is broken then perhaps the license has been revoked (and ROL would then lose the right to sell diddly squat). But I am proud to say I am not a lawyer (and no I don't do psychic healing or tarot cards either) so don't take any of my mumblings as having any legal weight - I sure don't ;)
