Anyone else get this message?

I recent;y got an e-mail from a globaltestmarket.com saying that Lucasarts has hired a thirdparty for some feedback for KOTOR II.  Here's the body of the message:

LucasArts has hired a third party, Nielsen Interactive Entertainment, to ask gamers to tell us what they think about Knights Of The Old Republic II

I'm curious to know if this is legit, or am I just setting myself up to getting some sort of spyware on my computer or ending up with all sorts of spam sent to my computer by ending up on some mailing list by clicking on the link.

Anyone know?????

At least it matches up with the name of the company (Nielsen Interactive Entertainment)

Here is a thread on Obsidian's website about it:

A google search on "Nielsen Interactive Entertainment and LucasArts" brings back a lot of hits that look legit.
