Under Legal Threat – Content now removed

Dear readers

I am sorry to say we have now removed any mention of record breaking products after we received a email threatening legal action.

Please take this as a warning that use of a logo could cause problems, even if you are a fan site.

Regards

David Floyd

How petty can you get?

I remember we were going to do a charity product once will all proceeds to a particular dog’s charity. We got a particularly nasty letter from a team of solicitors just for putting a small banner on our site.
So we ditched the idea and chose a different charity instead!

so what was the “record breaking” product?
I’d like to boycott it and let people know what a buch of assholes they are.
I assume its from the united states of arrogance…

It was not a manufacturer that complained but the company that records the records, they did not wish us to use their awards logo on our site. I will try to rewrite all the articles that have been removed to exclude any mention of them by name. I feel they are not playing the game, we only used the logo and information to promote the record and the record holder.
