Not that it would be relevant: but just _how_ do you arrive at that
conclusion?

Well, if it not themselves that can be called a major violated party,
then it is not up to them to sue.  They can still talk about it.

But that's subjective.  You should rather check what courts consider a
good argument.  And then you should check the copyright holder's
opinion to know just when the court might get asked in the first

That's not my business.  Better ask the copyright holder.  That will
give you a good guess about when you will go to court, and with what
claim.
