EFF Decodes Printer Microdots

The EFF has found that many color laserjet printers identify themselves and the time and date of the print job via a system of microdots that are printed onto every page. Nice, eh?

If you're going to use such a device to print out death threats or perform counterfeiting, then you may want to consult this list. Better yet, stick to legal activities, and ponder why such encoding systems have been put into place. A bit of arm-twisting by law enforcement, perhaps? They seem like the ones that would benefit most from such a system.
