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.

Same here.

However, I think we should not let ourselves be that disrespectful to that guy, whoever he is, and despite any other considerations we may have. OSNews being threatened is no excuse for a behavior, on our part, that my mom wouldn't like.

We published an article that cast a negative light on his business/the business he's CEO of. He's pissed off because he feels his company is being slandered. We can understand that. I do. Let him speak and let's be courteous as he hasn't been rude in his email. Even if he had been, it wouldn't have cost us anything to show him a better way of treating other people. Just my thoughts.
