Is this what NASSCOM is assisting?

Truce or dare

By Michael R. Zimmerman, eWEEK

The BSA's Truce Campaign is giving businesses fits, causing
some to consider alternative products for the first time.

If you're a small or medium-size company, there's a good chance you've
heard from the Business Software Alliance about getting your software
compliant with its licenses. If not, you probably will. The group is
well into a nationwide letter and radio campaign to do just that.

But what you probably don't know is that, like so many of the
companies that stuff your mailboxes with junk mail, the BSA, which
represents such software giants as Microsoft Corp.  (NasdaqNM:MSFT -
news), Adobe Systems Inc. (NasdaqNM:ADBE - news) and Apple Computer
Inc. (NasdaqNM:AAPL - news), 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.
