Addendum on Consumer Products and the DMCA

Another example of the printer business model that's near to my heart nose is the Playtex Diaper Genie. $25 may well exceed the marginal cost of the Genie itself, but Playtex surely clean ups on the refills, which are basically phenomenally expensive (if specially packaged) plastic bags -- patent pending. The Lexmark ruling hopefully will help ensure that the prospective grandkids' college funds won't be excessively drained by a refill authentication sequence in a 2020s Automatic Diaper Genie.
