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.

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.

Do these kill joys not have something better to do?

Good to see there is still some life in the chilefoundry. Hopefully someone will find time to get things rolling again 🙂
