BSA sends scary message

This is a common action by the BSA.

It is likely that Peter Hunt Architects was unable to produce documentation on their software purchases.

It is also likely that Peter Hunt Architects was first reported to the BSA by a disgruntled employee. (Most of these situations originate this way.)

Rather than fight a long, expensive court battle, they settled.

The BSA issued a press-release, detailing the situation, with joint purpose of embarrassing Peter Hunt Architects and sending a “scary message” to others in the process.

This article is proof that bad things happen to good companies.
