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.

Your statement is only true for people under 30. For people my age, and in fact a big swath of people from age 35 to 60, I'd say Commodore has huge cultural resonance. At least as much cultural resonance as other icons from the 80s such as Transformers. It's not like whoever owned the IP for Transormers had any problem cashing in on it.
