I am not going to provide the link to the BSA’s site that has some videos and photos (I am sure these are all actors and staged) about people who allegedly used unauthorized, proprietary software. But what I will provide is an opinion about how anyone can just walk away from the BSA nonsense and enjoy technology and be happy to share software.
Just stop using all non-free and non-freely-distributable software. Period.
Use only free and open source software (Fedora, Firefox, pidgin, Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org for example). If you are, unfortunately, locked-in into using Windows, you are able to still use the FOSS stuff mentioned earlier for that platform (and for Mac OSX as well). With that, you can just continue to laugh as to how much lower the BSA can go or raise the bar on sleeze.
