Some companies do allow the information out or people reverse engineer it.
I have used with my scanner under Linux.
Not a huge number are supported. I have also seen a shareware one for the film scanners but never
used it.

If you find a good solution to OCR let me know, I have looked at it
a few times and it always looks like too much work to clean up after it.
300 DPI true resolution is what I considered the minimum for an
acceptable looking scan.
