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

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

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 

How to proceed?

Kind regards
