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.

I'm sure that you will read this comment so here is a suggestion:

To succeed with your business you are very much dependent on the goodwill of Amiga fans. Please don't screw it up by being so aggressive. I really like the design of the C64/Amiga-style computers on your site and I do wish you and your company success so please don't alienate your potential fans and future customers like this. It will only make it worse.

Next time you see an article that you disagree with, just send a respectful mail explaining which facts were wrong in it and I'm sure that most, if not all, authors will be respectful back and let your opinion be heard.

Good luck!

Speaking in my official capacity as the Publisher, when people send polite and respectful email to us complaining that they've been treated unfairly in an article in OSNews, I usually intervene on their behalf, even when I think they're being a whiny baby.
