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:

Do you realise that it made no sense to invest in a fancy website until we had the trademark licenses sorted out? Let's see, we've had the Commodore one for a week or two, and the Amiga one for a couple of days.

Does anyone have a saved archive of the original website? One with the order page for Commodore-branded computers.

Because if so, then if it can be shown that this guy actually works at "Commodore USA", you could make an argument that "Commodore USA" was taking money for products they knew they did not have the legal right to sell.
