You can't get sued for it ;) The US has a law here that states a parody 
of something isn't a rip off. which I think was one of the better laws 
made. That's how Dennis Leary got away with the "Peanuts and Charlie 
Brown" thing he did without permission since it was a parody.

Besides, Visa probably runs BSD on their servers anyway lol.

Someone said something or other about me and FreeBSD as a rockstar and 
said Def Leopard. I don't agree, I think FreeBSD would be more suited 
with Cannibal Corpse or Slayer, it's way fast ;)
