If I take a drift card to a paint supplier and get it scanned for a paint match, is the information usable by other companies or is it proprietary?

I'm wondering if it would be possible to create a useful library of information from scanned drift cards.

Paul,

If you have a color scanned for a specific line/brand of paint, the code applies only to that brand, thus proprietary. I don't know if there's a cross reference between current brands, I wouldn't assume there is but some guys out there may keep track of that for some popular automotive colors.

Some of the colors on the list were scanned from drift cards and chips so yes, that is valuable info to add. If you supply data to me that was scanned from a sample, I'll note it as such.
