Because such laws are usually made by direct command from BSA and
contain specific wording.
I heard some similar scary things about a law in my country (Romania)
where exist a national registry for computer programs and you are
supposed to use only software registered there. I don't know much about
it as I am not an expert in law, but it seems the law is ignored by
users and not enforced against free software (so far).
