According to this post on Hexus.net, the Electronic Frontier Foundation says that “The US government has succeeded in persuading some color laser printer manufacturers to encode each page with identifying information. That means that without your knowledge or consent, an act you assume is private could become public. A communication tool you’re using in everyday life could become a tool for government surveillance. And what’s worse, there are no laws to prevent abuse.”
Hexus.net notes that the FBI has been collecting documents on groups like the ACLU and Greenpeace.
Time to use your trusty Enron Document Retention System!
