The SCANNING is the difference...

No, don't get bent out of shape about it. People don't get it. They're getting us used to being violated little by little.
My grandfather never would have stood for being felt up at the airport. Do you think John Wayne would have let some dork from the TSA touch his jewels? Hell no.
They're taking our dignity and our freedom one molecule at a time.
More on 2D bar codes from the Missouri Department of Revenue: “When the bar code is scanned, retailers only see the same information that is on the front of the driver license, except there is a four-character code that denotes the county of residence of the license’s owner that is not on the front of the license. The retail scan does not contain the photo or the signature of the licensed driver. How retailers use this information varies based on the type of scanner provided to the store by the scanner vendor. For example, some vendors might provide an “automatic age calculator” that instantly shows whether the owner of the driver license is old enough to purchase alcohol. This would help reduce instances where a clerk might miscalculate the age or to make it moot if a person attempts to make it appear that the driver license owner is old enough to purchase alcohol by altering the face of the license.The bar code is used by local license office personnel to instantly bring information about the driver to a computer screen when a customer comes into an office. Law enforcement can also scan the bar code to bring up driver record information if the person is pulled over. However, specific information noted in these two examples would not be able to be accessed by anyone at a store. The scanners in the license offices and in law enforcement vehicles are tied to specific systems that can’t be accessed by retail scanners. Here is a page on our web site that describes some of the driver license security measures, including the bar code. MoDoR license info

If you don't understand the liablity issue . . . you obviously never owned/operated a business.
