I suppose in your view all other lawyers are definitely dumb ('cause
you're so damn smart) and they didn't study law at all and get all
frightened for nothing then.

To me, since they have always agreed to fulfill their obligations, pay
damages, etc... it would seem like the lawyers concluded that whatever
the outcome would be, they would be in a much worse shape by not complying
with the Fair Terms of The License, and decided not to suffer the (court
mandated) consequences.

That's the best way you win in "court": buy not getting to court.
