You may remember the case of Nemesysco. They're the company who market software which they claim can read your emotions from the sound of your voice. A few weeks ago, Nemesysco threatened legal action over a paper by two Swedish academics, Lacerda and Erikkson, which was critical of their products amongst others. A number of bloggers were moved to comment on this.

Anyway, I've just recieved an email from "Yossi Pinkas, VP Sales & Marketing, Nemesysco Ltd." with an attached Press Release containing Nemesysco's response to the controversy. Nemesysco apparantly read this blog, since they quote me in it. Hi, Nemesysco!

The Press Release doesn't appear on their website (yet), so I've uploaded it to scribd. Comments to follow.
