Seeing Yellow

A few members of the group have put together a new website: Seeing Yellow. The website discusses the little-known invisible tracking dots printed on ever color page printed from almost every color laser printer or copier. This is not news; the EFF has been talking about this for quite a while now.
However, when someone called up their printer manufacturer more recently to ask about how they might turn the tracking information in their printed pages off, they were paid a visit by the U.S. Secret Service who wanted to know why he didn’t want to be tracked.
Computing Culture want to preserve the right to anonymous communication by fighting both printing dots and the government bullying used to sustain them. Seeing Yellow providers users of color laser printers with information on the topic so they may easy contact and technical support information for major color laser printer manufacturers. Stand up today by taking a moment, reading overthe page and calling your printer manufacturer. If we all stand up together, we’ll raise awareness about the issue, put pressure on our manufacturers, and make bullying of those of us that demand privacy and anonymity much more difficult.
