Students of the classics and ancient documents are used to checking for copyist
errors, but a photocopier?
And, of course, you can't trust the machine to check the copy agasint the original,
since it will probably make the same mistake every time.
Actually, with absolutely everything in the world going digital, this type of
problem is becoming inevitable, and endemic. Analogue systems have problems,
but digital systems are subject to catastrophic collapse.
