BSA joins ranks with RIAA in threatening without cause

The BSA (Business Software Alliance) is now taken to sending out threatening letters based on the results of a web/ftp spider search for the word "Office". The RIAA has done similar things in searching for "pirated" music by keyword and then automatically mailing.

From the BSA letter:

"What was located as infringing content:
Filename: /mandrake_current/SRPMS/ (199,643kb)
Filename: /mandrake_current/i586/Mandrake/RPMS/ (35,444kb)" thread

Anyone have a clue stick handy?
