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 thought it would be a good idea, in light of this letter, to send the following to Mr Altman. Let him know foolishness like this will hurt his company.

Mr Altman,

Having read your ridiculous and aggressive e-mail to the writers at OS News, I have to say that I am deeply disappointed in your conduct. I had been looking forward to trying and reviewing the upcoming products from Commodore. Instead, because of your inappropriate actions, I will be boycotting your company and advising my clients to do the same.
