Yeah, and?

If Harlequin had given them the rights for free, would that still be OK?

As I understand it, the case is likely to hinge on whether Harlequin were receiving a competitive rate from their subsidiary or could have licensed the rights for substantially more money elsewhere. I have a hard time believing that they couldn't have got more than 6% for those rights from a company which wasn't a subsidiary.
