"We do not, however, agree with Microsoft's characterization of the
situation involving GPLv3.  Microsoft cannot by any act of anticipatory
repudiation . . ."

(from typical outline notes regarding contractual (K) performance)

"G. Anticipatory Repudiation A party breaches before the contract is
even
to start 


In Anticipatory repudiation - a party can bring an action upon breach,
they need not wait until the K would have taken effect 


Anticipatory breach of a bilateral K:  

      1) Express repudiation - refusal to perform

      2) Implied repudiation - events are out of the parties power to
perform 


A party to a K for sale of goods can demand assurances of performance. 


If a party breaches and the subject matter is destroyed without fault
the damages for breach are limited to the time from breach to
destruction 


Repudiation does not apply to unilateral K’s "

Here's more:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anticipatory_repudiation

"Anticipatory repudiation, also called an anticipatory breach, is a term
in the law of contracts that describes a declaration by the promising
party to a contract, that he or she does not intend to live up to his or
her obligations under the contract. "
