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.

Heck, not suing, but thanking

I didn't know Commodore even existed today. I thought they had long gone out of business many years ago.

I checked their product line today, and while I'm not in the shopping mood, it was nice to browse their product line.

So, they should THANK OSNews for letting me know Commodore even existed.

Could have fooled me. But, I now understand this situation a bit more. Still, interesting product line and I wish him well on his business.

But hopefully he'll learn a big lesson from SCO about litigation. It doesn't bring in profit just to have someone shut up. It's just a negative distraction from attempting to sell your products on the open market.

CommodoreUSA, make a convincing pitch as to why we should buy your products. We're open minded people. We love technology and are always looking for something new. If you have something interesting, market it to us.
But, suing one of our favorite websites is not the way to do it.
