While I am not seeking to challenge the validity of your claim for Digital
ICE, I do question your offering it as a solution to a user's problem when
you know that the user cannot get Digital ICE as a separate application and
that not every scanner has an infrared channel so as to enable the user to
make use of Digital ICE even if it were available as a stand alone
application. In some cases, you are suggesting - nay, recommending - the
user buy a new scanner that has your product bundled with it if the user
happens not to have a scanner that came with Digital ICE.

Digital ICE should solve this problem for you.

FWIW I tried to remove a fingerprint from a film strip yesterday only to
find that it's embedded in the emulsion. The operator at the lab must have
put their fingerprint on the film while the emulsion was wet. :( In their
defense, it was right on the end of the film where an image *shouldn't*
have been, but the camera had squeezed another image onto the end of the
strip. Hopefully I'll be able to remove the fingerprint with some careful
use of the cloning tool.
