Color laser printer conspiracy? Not anymore.

Serious props to the EFF guys for cracking this.

I had heard about this inter-governmental-corporate scheme for a few years, but since I’ve never owned a color laser printer didn’t have much of an opportunity to check it out.

The way they cracked it is a pretty tricky technique, but determing the parity bits was a big help in separating data from structure. Hooray for reverse engineering!
