Console permissions for USB scanner?

how do I allow console access to a scanner connected via USB/libusb?

After reboot the scanner can be found by sane-find-scanner but cannot be
used because the device file in /proc/bus/usb is only accessible to
root. How can I automatically change ownership of this device *without*
depending on the bus#/device# scheme used in /proc/bus/usb?
