Title: Illegal Scanning
Post by Wayne Lawson on Apr 7th, 2004, 8:29pm
I'm trying to find paper that can not be scanned.  We offer expensive training materials - and some of our customers have decided to illegally scan our products and distribute them online.  Is there such a product to eliminate this?  I know that this is illegal, but finding these individuals - and once it's done - it's hard to prosecute.  Please email me directly at with any thoughts or opinions.

Regards, Wayne

If you find it, it may be patented.

Absolutely prevent copying of the content? No way. That would be magic paper ;-) However, I believe there IS paper that will show zigzag lines, etc, or a "watermark" if photocopied. Check at your local office supply dealers, however it may be special order or not available to the public. I could be right or wrong.
