Photocopying money

A couple of weeks ago I went to see one of our customers, Officreche, to sort something out with their Xerox photocopier/scanner/priner machine. We wanted to check if the scanner works ok and as we didn’t have any paper around I suggested we scan a bank note… To our surprise, the machine immediatley stopped and gave an error message saying that this image cannot be reproduced. To me that means that every image scanned is being verified against a list of possible images that aren’t allowed to be reproduced… Does it also mean that everything you scan or copy gets sent to Xerox HQ for verification ? lets hope it doesn’t… 🙂
