Submission + - Call Printer Makers To Turn off Tracking Dots (seeingyellow.com)

makohill writes: "The EFF has been talking about tracking dots in printers for some time now. What we didn't know until now is that when people have asked the manufacturers of their printers to turn off the spy dots, they were ratted out by their printer makers and subsequently paid a visit by the secret service.

In response, the Computing Culture group at the MIT Media Lab is organizing folks to call in to their printer manufacturers to complain about the dots and to demand that they are turned off. If we all stand up together, the secret service can't visit us all. The whole story and information on how to call in is online at Seeing Yellow."
