Yeah, you got it.  If the conduct does not show an attempt to honor any
of the licensing conditions, non-acceptance has to be assumed.

If, in contrast, we have an incomplete attempt of compliance (often
characterizable as "dragging their feet"), we are talking about
non-compliance instead.

Which of the two is in question might just be resolved in discovery.  In
the common case of a settlement and coming into compliance and absent of
additional interests/penalties, the resolution may never be done.

In a typical case, both complaint and defense will list arguments for
both of these possibilities.
