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.

This CommodoreUSA episode, and I call it that, just shows what happens when a brand goes under.

I agree mostly with the thing you said, but you missed the fact that this Commodore USA IS NOT COMMODORE.

Commodore actually is based in Europe (Netherlands) and the propriety is from asian (Chinese? Singapore?) Electronic Manufacturing Company called ASIARIM.

http://www.asiarim.net/index.html

There are no evidences that Commodore International based in Netherlands (where still remains the board of chairmen) has sold any rights for the name Commodore to this cybersquatter so-called ghost enterprise firm "CommodoreUSA".

As long as mr. Barry Altman now is user in this forum, then it is time to proof that he is legally entitled for the name COMMODORE, or please leave the scene forever.

Raffaele,

I did not miss that point. Perhaps you did not pick up on the subtleties there.

OH ZOMG! is that for real?

So this announcement means the CommodoreUSA is for real and they purchased the rights for the name Commodore by Asiarim???
