Slashdot has a thread on Currency Detection Discovered in More Products. This relates to the announcement that Photoshop won’t edit some currency images to prevent counterfeiting. This type of control is now being found in printer drivers as well. I can’t see how this can have any effect at all: there will always be products that don’t have such protections (OSS for example) and the counterfeiters can’t be that stupid! All it does is prevent idle copying at work. Which is, like, totally the major issue confronting governments.
