Removing serial number tags from Canon CR2 (RAW file)

I'm trying to remove the camera serial number from my Canon CR2 (RAW) files with exiftool.

I am using:    exiftool -serialNumber=  

and it doesn't work.  What is the right way to do this?

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately makernote tags may not be deleted (to avoid
confusing the Canon software among other reasons).  Instead,
set the serial number to something else.  ie)

exiftool -canon:serialnumber=0 FILE
