"It'll probably weaken your position in court though."
Yup. In the US it's called "laches", and yes it will weaken your position in court.
In Germany, where Harald is, it's a statutory defence and will *destroy* your position in court. So Harald is forced to pursue violators immediately he finds out (I think it's 60 days), otherwise the law then gives them a free pass...
