arenaman: When it comes to ownership in complicated legal contructions you do need a lawyer. You cannot compare this with eg owning a car. Clear is that it is unclear which part of the Ip belongs to ROL and which part belongs to Castle . The same goes for the code.

So it has nothing to do with 'childish' but different intrepretations of a contract.

Futhermore the fact that you own something at this moment doenst take away the fact that legally you can breach a contract.

When this will come to court a judge will allways look at the situation *as it was* at the time of the breach. At that time Castle didnt own Risc os ( code or ip) ROL has an exclusive licence for the desktop market. So Castle violated that.

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
