The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach" which *encourages* breach of (enforcable) obligations if it's economically efficient to do so.
However, copyright law provides for injunctions to prevent ongoing infringement, so it does not matter if it would be more beneficial for the infringers to continue infringing. They will be prevented from doing so. <http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/17/usc_sec_17_00000502----000-.html> § 502. Remedies for infringement: Injunctions (a) Any court having jurisdiction of a civil action arising under this title may, subject to the provisions of section 1498 of title 28, grant temporary and final injunctions on such terms as it may deem reasonable to prevent or restrain infringement of a copyright. _______________________________________________ gnu-misc-discuss mailing list email@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
