They could be right. Judges for the BETT awards have to sign "non-disclosure agreements" and will be filmed in Becta's pursuit of the magic formula for what makes good software (suggested shortcut: equip teachers to make that choice). Some question the investment for this when it could be better used in schools - something the DfES is finally achieving with its new materials and roadshows (p17).
