So Barry force the two companies into bankruptcy?  Pretty mean spirited, but I suppose you have to be ruthless in the face of the competition.  Part of why Microsoft was dominant was because of it's ruthlessness.

Well, it's not like those two companies were the pinnacle of business competence. Have they shipped anything in the past 3 years?

I will now resume my position on the sidelines. Not getting involved with this Commodore USA stuff.

I wouldn't be surprised if the SEC does an investigation of those now defunct companies.  Oh well, on to bigger and better things under the C= name.

Unless they had some kind of overseas operation they probably are out of the SEC's jurisdiction...

But I don't begrudge C=USA's use of lawyers to get it's way, the IT industries leaders (Apple & Microsoft) spend the equivalent of a third world country's GDP on Lawyers.  It's all part of the game, and the fact that Barry was able to play the game speaks well for C=USA.

No, they were filing quarterly reports with the SEC, and their stock was on the pink sheet so SEC has some legal authority in this matter.

I'll assume it was meant to be humorous when Leo's response to why CUSA is still paying licensing fees if they were "the new daddy" was:

No, they were announcements on the possibility of announcements not the actual announcements.

Once again, not all docs are listed on the website the day they are filed, so we have another new onslaught of docs appearing now.
9 new ones since the last appeared in April, but 1 not available electronically.

Enjoy!
