In Segments Three - MORE ON THE Microsoft & the Business Software Alliance: The Attack on America Continues
This is a continuation on last weeks conversation.....

The Business Software Alliance (www.BSA.org) announced on Feb first, the official launch of its Software Truce campaign(www.bsatruce.com), a one-month opportunity for local Boston businesses to review their software programs and acquire the licenses they need to get legal without facing penalties for past infringement imposed by BSA. This is the third and largest Software Truce offered by BSA to date with nearly one million businesses reached simultaneously in Boston, Chicago , Cleveland , Dallas and Denver.

At the GeekCast office we recieved 4 different notifications on this truce program for the Chicago market. Are they getting ugly on this one?
