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.

So my question is, how is it possible for a company based in Florida to try to use a Georgia law against a website based in neither state?

I smell shenanigans.

it isn't possible. the company headquarters, a.k.a, home of the 'CEO,' is in south florida. thom is overseas. osnews.com is listed as having a nevada address. and as far as i know, the site host isn't in georgia either.

i think 'barry the CEO' copied something he found on google without understanding it. it would certainly fit with his behavior to date. ;)

EDIT: actually, i know he did because i just found the text he lifted almost verbatim: http://www.chillingeffects.org/protest/notice.cgi?NoticeID=780

i'm sorry, barry. you're a complete joke.
