Popular imaging program Adope Photoshop has admitted to putting anti-counterfeit programming into its latest release. What does this mean? It means when you scan a twenty dollar billl, it won't let you use it. At all.

This to me is just silly. Why can't I use my money my way? And besides, the act of scanning money isn't illegal. It's not even illegal to PRINT it again, as long as it's only one-sided, and less thatn 75% or greater than 150% of original size. But if I want to scan in an draw a moustache on Ben Franklin, I'm outta luck.

What's next? A no-boobies feature to prevent pornography? An anti-Bush feature so we can no longer mock the president in doctored photos?

Hell, i wouldn't be suprised if some XXXXXXX blogging program started XXXXXX control over XXXX what I XXXXXX in my XXXXXX.
