Analysis:

Three part test (RJRMacDonald Inc. v. Canada (Attorney General))

1.the appeal must present a serious issue for adjudication

b.Though for sake of argument is posited here

2.the appellant must show that it will suffer irreparable harm if the relief is not granted
a.e.g. go out of business if they can’t sell a product
b.However it looks here like they will go out of business anyway

3.The balance of convenience
a.On the other hand R is being irreparably damaged to their licensing program
