Washington State House Bill 1031 has been introduced by the committee on technology, energy & communications concerning concerns RFID’s; that all packages must be clearly labeled that the devise is included, that the buyer must give permission for the information to be used and how to remove the device after purchase.
“Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag is an object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves. Chip-based RFID tags contain silicon chips and antennas. Passive tags require no internal power source, whereas active tags require a power source,” quoting Wikipedia.
Oh, and who was the first major U. S. company to incorporate RFID technology to track products?
