1869 ? I could not find what this case is about, but I wonder what
relation it would have with modern scanning technology.

Well, it is obviously a problem, but I think it can be done the other
way round.

1. Publish some documents on which an organisation has a dubious claim.
2. Inform the organisation.
3. If the organisation doesn't answer, be sure that the issue gets to
the media.

If the organisation doesn't sue you, I think it can safely be assumed
that the claim is not valid.
