I remember cease and desist letters being sent to some people many years
ago who were sticking Boost branding all over their code and claiming it
was a Boost library, when it was not. They promptly removed their
claims. This was before the Software Freedom association and long before
any Foundations, so very long ago.

I can't remember anything in many recent years however. Obviously I've
been around Boost for too long if it all fades into grey.
