All that they are swearing is that they are representing the copyright owners
of the programs listed.  Since Microsoft Office is listed, that much is truthful. 

You may notice that the rest of the wording is not done as strongly, so even
if the entire document were a sworn statement, I don't think you could go
after them with it. 

There should be some legal recourse, though, since this is basically a form of
legal harrassment if the claims are not true.
