Current Law Students / Re: Laser printer a good investment?
« on: December 25, 2006, 03:14:37 AM »

Laser-printing technology makes it incredibly easy to counterfeit money and documents, and Crean says the dots, in use in some printers for decades, allow law enforcement to identify and track down counterfeiters. However, they could also be employed to track a document back to any person or business that printed it. Although the technology has existed for a long time, printer companies have not been required to notify customers of the feature. Lorelei Pagano, a counterfeiting specialist with the U.S. Secret Service, stresses that the government uses the embedded serial numbers only when alerted to a forgery. "The only time any information is gained from these documents is purely in [the case of] a criminal act," she says. John Morris, a lawyer for The Center for Democracy and Technology , says, "That type of assurance doesn't really assure me at all, unless there's some type of statute." He adds, "At a bare minimum, there needs to be a notice to consumers."

If the practice disturbs you, don't bother trying to disable the encoding mechanism -- you'll probably just break your printer.

I may be wrong, but is it not that this is quoted out of context?

Panera, I agree with most of your post except for one of your assertions. Law school does NOT teach you about practicing law ...

I guess that's what the poster meant, unlv .. law school does not teach you how to practice law, it just gives you a general idea what practicing law is all about ...
