Adobe Says It Uses Anti-Counterfeiting Technology

“Adobe Systems Inc. acknowledged yesterday it had added technology to its popular Photoshop graphics software at the request of government regulators and bankers to prevent consumers from making copies of the world’s major currencies

Rival graphics software by Taiwan-based Ulead Systems Inc. also blocks customers from making copies of currency.

Experts said the decision by Adobe represents one of the rare occasions when the U.S. technology industry has agreed to include third-party software code into commercial products at the request of government and finance officials.” —Washington Post
