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.

RE[4]: What is your reply Thom?

Member since:

Thom most certainly made some unsubstantiated and defamatory accusations. Does that mean he's wrong? No, he could be right. But even if he is right it's unprofessional to publish such accusations unless you have proof. I have no idea if what Thom did was legally classifiable as libel or slander, but it's not professional journalism.
