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.

Welcome to the Internet, threating litigation against random websites only makes a company look petty.

The author of the story only shared his opinion, and because of the legal threats more people will as well.

If Commodore is going to make a come back in the 21st century, they might want to respect the 21st century freedoms many people expect online.

perhaps but libel is still libel even in the 21st century. Granted they could have responded better but you cant fuck all even on the internet. Especially if your in a 1st world country.
