There was a story on Slashdot yesterday 
( http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/03/02/28/1317244.shtml?tid=109 )
about how the BSA sent a "cease and desist" order to the University
of Muenster in Germany for having copies of M$ Office on their FTP

Unfortunately, the files were actually RPMs of OpenOffice.  Seems
the BSA just looked for the word "office" and automatically sent out
their harassment letters.
