Secret printer ID codes may breach EU privacy laws

andy

its rarely used

The function has been on colour copiers for years, i work for one of the large companies and the police well in the UK anyway would have to go though the OEM to get them to tell them the exact details.

From what i know its rarely used or the information requested. Any way just buy a cheap scanner and colour printer and it will not be on there as if you buy in cash and don't register even if the code was on there. Who would know?
