    Is Your Printer Spying On You?

    Check out this link over at EFF, probably a good idea for stopping counterfeiters but could easily get out of control. Here is the link.

    Even so, ever printed at Kinkos? How about at a public library? Work? A friend's house?

    I think this type of crap shouldn't be allowed... even if it means they can track down counterfeiters and so on...

    If they want to stop that crap, they could build into the hardware a mechanism for preventing printing of fake money.

    Who knows what schemes governments the world over have up their sleeve.
