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.

Really? Both excerpts they included in their reply expressed an opinion and made no attempt to present the opinion as an undisputed fact. The fact that this legal threat (one that I honestly believe no lawyer in their right mind would think had any basis in law) came directly from the CEO so badly formatted certainly appears to indicate that at the least they are poorly organized or have a CEO with some very poor judgment or at at worst that they may be just the sort of folks Thom alludes that they are in his article in the first place. But, like Thom's comments those are just my opinions. If they are not a scam or vapor, the only way to prove it is by shipping real products to real customers. So in the end either Thom is right and yet another company will fade away without ever shipping anything but hype or they will ship real products to real customers and both Thom and now myself after this comment will have egg on our faces.
