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.

Oh, puh-leaze. Thom gave this pathetic "threat" (copied and pasted from Chilling Effects, line breaks and highlights preserved so very well) exactly the response it deserved.

And now that this ploy is exposed, have you noticed their CTO begging everyone to "Take a chill pill" in a later thread? That's an attempt at damage control, one that deserves Eliyahu's eloquent reply.

Commodore USA needs to remember the First Rule of Holes: "When you find yourself in one, stop digging."
