Done! Most recent HP drivers for their scanners prevent copying of
newer US$20 bills. Tosses you to an anti-counterfeit website!
Windows of course.

Color laser printers output a serial number indicator of some sort
by a near-invisible pattern of yellow pixels overlaying the
printed image. I imagine it's not 100% reliable but apparently
it's been in place for some time.

It sounds like tin-foil-hat black-helicopter stuff, but I found
multiple stories about it online in places like The Standard.

It's all very depressing.
