It is interesting that under British law, if a patent holder is not
exploiting their patent, a court can force them to licence it - although
the licence terms would be dictated by the court and might not be
acceptable to either party.

This would not apply to Geoworks whose patent is not British and who are
obviously intending to licence it anyway.
