Megaupload Fluiddraw 5 Serial Number
In June 2009 a pilot study was started by a group of Dutch consumers, using the software to analyse the film chips and other elements of a selected sample of more than 1,000 consumer cameras and scanners and to collect data on the computer-assisted detection of forged images, false positives, image files that may be recovered by a sufficiently skilled person, the content of the image, and a comparison of the images in the area of the film chips. On 29 August 2009 a study was announced by the Canadian government stating that there is sufficient evidence that image falsification occurs in 21% of cases, that most of this will be detected by scanners, and that therefore there is no need to require serial numbers on all cameras. In January 2010 a study by Kodak was published, stating that only in 16% of cases does the tampering result in a change in the values of the pixels, which are added to the camera, and that therefore it is not necessary to make all cameras have a serial number. A 2004 study by Kodak concluded that a serial number is not required in order for a camera to be authentic and that only in 21% of the cases is the tampered image a security risk. In October 2010 a European Commission report concluded that a serial number is not required in order for a camera to be authentic and that only in 16% of the cases is the tampered image a security risk. Thailand The development of any government policy regarding serial numbers is affected by the involvement of the camera industry, which contributed a large amount of funds to the political campaign of the Thai Rak Thai party, which was in power at the time. Thus the Thai government decided that it would not require a serial number in all cases. To resolve the issue, the Thai government started to collect information about the make, model, serial number, date of purchase and use of all digital cameras sold in Thailand. The first collection of the serial number was made in December 2005. The Thai government then asked camera manufacturers to include on cameras sold in Thailand, a label saying "This camera is not registered". The Thai Ministry of Finance demanded that all manufacturers include the serial number in the camera. In 2009, Thailand enforced a law requiring that all new digital cameras sold must include a serial number. The manufacturers responded by replacing all cameras with the new serial number requirement, and the first cameras sold with the new serial numbers were launched in 2010. In June 2017, the Thai government banned the sale and use of all cameras not including a serial number.
