Legal Well, this was rather unexpected. As it turns out, Commodore USA's CEO Barry Altman isn't particularly pleased about the article I wrote earlier today in which I placed a considerable amount of scepticism with regards to Commodore USA and its business (and website). He (not his lawyer) sent us a threatening email demanding we take down the article, post a new correction article, the whole shebang. The entire email - as an image, you'll want the original formatting - after the break. Our reply? We refer you to the reply given in the case of Arkell v. Pressdram.

I've paraphrased (more b*st*rdised) a famous quote regarding the meaning of some peoples lives.

I think it aptly sums up the entire post C=64 history of both the Commodore and Amiga brand names.

Commodore went bust because they didn't know how to handle the brands properly and everyone who has owned the IP since has similarly f'ed it up.

The joke is the two brand names are still actually worth something and would probably sell bucket loads in the right hands.
