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.

Threatening legal action is NOT a good way to instil trust and increase customers in a niche market - especially a niche market sick to death of legal action.

Dear new owner #580 of the Commodore brand: Shut people up with a great product, not lawsuits or threatening a small site.
