Alright, now you have:

I think that terminating a license because of unrelated lawsuits is
unacceptable, but that terminating a license because you sue claim the
work infringes one of your patents is perfectly acceptable.  By suing,
you are trying to take away other people's rights over the software, so
you should lose yours as well.
