Well I run an ad-block in most cases so I'd probably miss that if they were. Can you find a link referencing it? I'm kind of interested in how it works and what exactly it entails

Here is what I found scroll down to the FAQ.

This is what I thought it might be, the BSA doesn't go after individuals who pirate, they just go after businesses via software audits and illegal distributors selling software.

 

EDIT: I should probably have been more clear in my initial post. I just looked and I really wasn't clear. I was talking about at the individual/personal level that I haven't seen vocal anti-piracy software groups (what the OP seemed to be indicating there was a large push for and over zealot protection, etc.). Businesses do get audited and illegal distributors get busted, but on the individual pirate level you never really hear anything and it's not really the focus from what I can see. MPAA and RIAA on the other hand specifically targeted individuals to strike fear in other would-be pirates.
