This is a pretty cool database. Just out of curiousity, who would want to use this and why?

Perhaps to get a bar code & product name, then make a legitimate-looking (something) and then use it for (illegitimate) something to get (cash/rep/revenge). Just my guess. ;)

Yeah, I could have used something like this when doing the barcode-tricks thing for 2600. I was working on a way to thicken a barcode line with a non-gloss pen to 'transform' it into a different product. It's a very in-flexible thing to do. A database would have been very useful for that. Instead, I went to a supermarket with pen and notepad to collect barcode prospects. It must have looked strange.
