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.

Member since:

this site has tracked the Amiga/Commodore fiasco probably longer than this guy has held the rights ownership... pushing 10 years now. These are the fans waited for year with false hope and more bickering. If anybody is going to even care about a dead brand it's these folks that still have old machines running. I'd bet the Plantiff doesn't even OWN a working Commodore machine.

If he's running a business catering to 1980's fans, prove Thom wrong! Release a real product that does what it CLAIMS to do. Put up, shut up, or go home. There's over 100 articles just on OSNews that reference Commodore going back to 1997! They fail nearly every single time. (but Duke Nukem still hold the record, so they fail at that too.) We have a better chance of seen BeOS/BeNews come back again than a Commodore machine.
