as all that after all…

Well, last week I logged an entry about Adobe’s deal with the government to try and stamp out conterfiting and already someone’s beaten their “protection”. According to this article on Wired News, folks have found several ways around the currency scanning protection. Everything from using an older version of Photoshop to importing the picture from the clipboard gets around this little protection. So, as the article says, that begs the question, “why did they bother?” Was it government pressure? A vast conspiracy between the Bilderbugers and the Knights Templar? Who knows… In any case, it’s easily defeatable and generated a bunch of bad press for them.

Go figure.
