What's an example of a "self-defence action" where the license terminates?

You commence an action, including a cross-claim or counterclaim,

AIUI, cross-claims and counterclaims are normal self-defence when you are contesting a patent-based accusation and you hold patents which you think the other party may infringe. Of course, the UK does not yet have full software patenting, so I am inexperienced with this and could be wrong. (Next EU swpat vote expected in Council of Ministers for Competitiveness, 24 Sep, so lobby national representatives however you can...)
