    The Seeing Yellow website wants you to call your printer's manufacturer and ask them to stop spying on you.

    I found the link to Seeing Yellow from Boing Boing.

    As posted on Boing Boing:
    If you are not counterfeiting money or issuing threats via color laser printer notices - you probably have nothing to worry about other than you are still subject to being spied upon via your color laser printer output - be careful what you print!

    Wow, got no idea :eek:
    but would those invisible dots have any significance in developing nations (which i live in) with less stringent regulations and no records of printers purchaseo_O?

    Hi simple_guy0085,

    Welcome to Wilders!

    I do not know, but never underestimate the value of being careful!
