How does a court of law distinguish someone who will never
obtain permission from someone who has not yet decided
to obtain permission?

"Before obtaining written permission" is equivalent to
"without written permission."  I there any other consistent
way to interpret it?

There is no requirement to consult a lawyer about
a license before submitting for approval.  But if
you are trying to do something out of the ordinary
(or clever), writing a license is not a simple task.
Legal professionals can provide important guidance.

I won't make further discussion until you resubmit.
