There are two sides to every contract.

One of the earliest things I remember from law school is my Contracts professor's rather startling pronouncement that "Breach is Good." Good for lawyers, anyway.

He also mentioned that people comply with contract obligations when the cost of compliance is less than their perceived cost of breach - and that likewise, people breach contracts when they determine it is in their best interest to do so.

It's just business. Nothing personal, ya know.
