The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach"
which *encourages* breach of (enforcable) obligations if it's
economically efficient to do so.  Compliance with license/contract
obligations is almost always voluntary -- if you choose not to
comply, then you don't have to. You merely have to compensate the
non-breaching party for his expectancy interest. Hint: damages.

That's the case with a contract.  But if you choose not to comply
with licensing conditions, the license just does not apply.

Since you and Hyman are incapable of understanding the meaning and
operation of a "condition precedent" as used in copyright contracts,
you will forever remain confused concerning licensing fundamentals.
