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.

Thank you for this! I read your original piece on Commodore today and it didn’t change my opinion of what I already thought was a shady company (I haven’t seen a shittier web site in a LONG time), but after you posted Barry’s drivel, I am now certain of it. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

What a shame (sham?) Commodore has become—and to think I used to own a C64…
