Today I received the mail below and my first thought was: That has to be a joke of someone you wants to feel cool for a minute. The iso is only a few days online and I have no clue, what should be under the copyright of this company? I don't even mentioned the name "Commodore" in any text regarding the iso. And the rights of the C65 ROM I thought has Cloanto. So why should this be a real mail from that company?
I has removed the name of the sender (no more problems with legal issues ...)

Subject: Legal removal request
Dear Guenther Reiter,
we found out about the distribution of your software after a notice.
We hereby inform you that you are using therefor parts that are copyrighted by
our company 'commodore-cbm'.
Since you offer the software free of charge, we hereby request you once
without consequences to stop the distribution immediately.
If you do not comply with this request by August 4, 2020, we will
unfortunately have to involve our legal department.
But on second thought I'm getting unsure wheather it could be a real request for deleting the iso file from the filehoster? Should I better ask at commodore-cbm.com what they are complaining about or does this maybe waking up sleeping dogs?
Any advices especially from the Mega team about this? I really have no thought about a possible copyright issue, besides the offered download of the ROM from zimmers.net?
