Amiga Power got itself in trouble with Ocean Software after the following letter was printed in the letters section of AP17 on page 95:
Dear AMIGA POWER,
A few weeks ago I wrote to Ocean saying somebody was selling pirated games at a market. I asked them what I should do, two weeks later they replied to me with a price list of games I can buy. I think Ocean are a crap company.
Yours, Chris Hughes, Harrogate
The problem was Amiga Power had recently decided to head each letter with an amusing out-of-context snippet from the letter itself. In this case they chose the heading "Ocean are a crap company".
Thus, a reader who had merely been attempting to assist Ocean in preventing the piracy of their games, inadvertently caused a huge rift to develop between the UK's biggest Amiga software publisher at the time and Amiga Power.
