Imagine that every time you printed a document, it automatically 
included a secret code that could be used to identify the printer - and 
potentially, the person who used it. Sounds like something from an 
episode of "Alias," right? 
Unfortunately, the scenario isn't fictional. In a purported effort to 
identify counterfeiters, 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.[...]
