The following message, sent to an OpenOffice.org mailing list talk about
something looking like a scam by promising very cheap software on CDs
and later asking for a larger price.
At a closer look, I found one of their discs include some of our clipart
I know this is allowed by the PD license, but is not very pleasant for us.

If you want to prevent someone from ruining your name, you have to
seriously take a look at this company: www.manaysoftware.com.
Manay has advertisements in cyberspace (Google, Yahoo, etc.) that
promotes the set of 4 cds (including OpenOffice) for free and buried at
print at the bottom of their home page and no one can find to read at
the time to place the order, is the stipulation that if 2 cds (within
the set of 4) is not returned within 10 days of receipt (when the items
arrive, you virtually have no time to return the software, needless you
are even not aware of the hidden stipulation ), then you credit card
will be billed $39.95, on top of the original $4.95 already paid for
with the original shipping charge. Getting a refund is impossible.
This kind of cheating really ruins the name of OpenOffice, as many
victims think that Manay is the front store of the OpenOffice or Open
You must take a legal action to stop this scandal.
