Q.If a licensee fails to pay royalties, does continued distribution constitute a copyright violation?

A.Maybe Yes depending on the terms of the license agreement. If a license agreement specifies that the licensee is required to pay royalties, the license agreement may also provide that the license either automatically terminates or terminates at the licensor's option. If such is the case and the licensor sends the licensee written notice to cease copying and distribution due to delinquent royalties, any further use of the software without the licensor's authorization would be a violation of copyright law.
