Ataribox Gone Already?

Going to http://www.ataribox.com/ gives you the message that the Account has been suspended. Is the project already done and doomed or did somebody forget to pay a bill?

I do not know, but it seems the heirs of the mythical brand are finally are using the Atari's authentic methods. :wink:
Hopefully that is for good, I would like much a new Atari machine that it is not a VCS2600 with USB and SD.

Yeah, the 3rd party legal company they hired just does a Google search fore "Atari" and automatically sends a C&D letter. Now they're going after KitKat (UK) for the Breakout ad they did a year ago... :roll:
