Some publicity:

 From LWN.net <http://lwn.net/Articles/102742/>:
>  ZDNet Australia covers an MPAA screwup 
> <http://news.zdnet.co.uk/business/0,39020645,39167160,00.htm>. "Linux 
> Australia president Pia Smith told Builder AU the MPAA had issued 
> Linux Australia with a notice of claimed infringement demanding the 
> group cease providing access to two copyrighted movies -- one called 
> 'Grind' and the other 'Twisted' -- and ordering it to 'take 
> appropriate action against the account holder'. However, the files in 
> question had nothing to do with those movies. The file entitled 
> Twisted is a download of the popular framework written in Python and 
> Grind refers to a download of Valgrind, a tool for developers to 
> locate memory management." Linux Australia looks set to have some fun 
> with this one.

The ZDNet article even links to the twistedmatrix website. Woo. :)
