Hi Dewey,

thank you for pointing us to that site.

I think, we should officially act. When you click on the link "Click 
here" in the text "Windows 2000, XP, Vista or 7 (32 and 64 bit)
Click here for other operating systems." near the blue arrow at the end 
of the page, you get the page 
http://www.openoffice.us.com/openoffice/offsite.php?dest=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.openoffice.org%2Fall_rc.html%23untested-full&top=%2Fincludes%2Fframes%2Fdownload&h=100

I think, that is a copyright infringement. They add there own banner 
above our website content and provide it under www.openoffice.us.com.


In addition, the sentence "OpenOffice is an open source product licensed 
under GNU LGPL v3. " at the end of the page is suspicious. I cannot test 
the download itself. You first get an .exe file of 707KB and I have no 
safe environment to test, what happens when I use it. When they indeed 
provide an Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1, then the product name and license is 
wrong.

How to proceed?

Kind regards
Regina
