EFF's "Yellow Dots of Mystery" on Instructables | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


EFF's "Yellow Dots of Mystery" on Instructables

Printer dot surveillance is a disturbing end run around individuals' right to anonymous speech. Anonymity is a vital freedom -- it can help political or religious speakers, labor organizers, or whistleblowers avoid retribution for their beliefs and opinions. Around the world, anonymity is an important practical protection for dissidents and religious groups against persecution by repressive governments.

Furthermore, it's deeply troubling that printer manufacturers implemented this surveillance mechanism under the table after secret meetings between government representatives and technology manufacturers. Printer companies don't disclose the tracking to their customers and so the existence of these yellow tracking dots remains secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just use this image of randomly placed yellow dots as the background for any messages you make on your computer that need to be anonymous.
