Why did you illegally steal footage from a disney movie (TRON) to make ads for your company?

Ads for Commodore were included in Disney DVD releases of Tron Legacy.  Please drop this last question off the list.

@whomever is compiling and sending the questions

If you haven't done so already...

It might be wise to group the questions by general topic, which should make the q/a both easier to address (without having to duplicate similar answers to similar questions) and easier to follow for the audience once completed.

Buying an advert does not give you the rights to replicate the product.  If I take out a half page advert in a newspaper, it doesn't mean I can then re-print the paper on-line.  Buying an advert is not buying a licence to reproduce the product.

Have you seen the contract between C=USA and Disney?  No?  I didn't think so.

Back on topic:

My question is what the long term vision for the new Commodore Amiga and a OS to go with it.

What was publicly presented was licence to ship Tron DVD with C=USA products, merely an sales integration which any company would accept.

So far, there have been many "visions" (including c=OS titled "Vision") bust mostly has proven to be "no vision"

Question is what does C=USA think of the "image in the mirror" website SinclairUK? Is it fan to read similar themed humor and what C=USA could learn from it?

The fact that the videos were removed by Youtube  would suggest they had no permission to use footage from the movie.

Or the contract was for a set time period.  I realize that hate and rage against C=USA blinds people, but Disney legal dept approved that video which was C=USA's second submission.  First submission, Disney's legal dept rejected.  I was asked to consult on the submission and Disney's rejection notice so I clearly have a good picture on what was legal and what wasn't by Disney's standards.
