Huawei faces UK sales ban if it doesn't cough up 4G patent tithes

Is Extortion still a thing?

Given that the Judge's award is so much nearer to Huawei's offer than UP's demand (some 34 to 45 times that awarded), shouldn't the latter be investigated for Extortion?

UP being subsequently banned from "trading" in the UK, ie they have to give away the IP, would be a fair and reasonable outcome.

That's the trouble with UK courts, UP gambled on greed and lost, yet they didn't lose.
