The very best thing to do is write back and say "you are mistaken, we only use open source software and there is no need for any audit". But if you can't honestly say that, this looks like the best advice. - Simon Phipps

Egads.

What gives the BSA the power to compel subpoenas necessary to actually crawl through your information? I mean, let's say you're a hosting organization  Roll Eyes How could they compel you to crawl into your client's private sandboxes?

Seems kind of like JasonD's old game of sending a "You are in copyright violation with your domain, you need to give it to us immediately" scam. He was WAY too successful with that one.
