I am at a loss to understand why scanned images are saved - it serves no obvious purpose. If this story really takes off, I can see some juicy lawsuits resulting.
If I were a senior politician in government, I'd be looking for ways to prosecute copier companies and their officers under the Data Protection Act (UK) or anything else that might be applicable. I would not just be looking for fines I'd be looking for serious jail time.
