If you've received one of those nastygrams from the Business Software Alliance (BSA) or even if you haven't, you might be interested in this ZDNet story posted at Yahoo: "What you probably don't know is that, like so many of the companys that stuff your maiboxes with junk mail, the BSA... has no intention of following up on its letters -- regardless of how threatening and personal they may seem. It won't phone. And it won't pop in for a surprise audit." Turns out this is just a marketing campaign crafted to frighten unknowing users into buying more software.
