Spywear Aisle Three

No one likes the idea of Big Brother spying on our every move. But it
may not be Big Brother we have to worry about. It may just be the
cupcakes we pack in our kids lunches. It seems merchants Sara Lee,
Kellogg, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Pepsico, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and
Wal-Mart want to hack into our clothing, our food, even our medicine
by implanting these items with RFID devices.

As small as a grain of rice, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)
can be used to track movements of supplies - and the people who use
Just ask Gillette who used these devices to surreptitiously
photograph customers attempting to purchase their razor blades.
Trojaned devices have the ability to broadcast, the ability to
download new software, the ability to morph into something far more
insidious than the currently described "pallet-level monitoring"
proclaimed by the merchants. Indeed, these abilities are so profound,
it may well be the reason these vendors are attempting to get their
use of them protected under Homeland Security - to thwart lawsuits
that might arise from future undisclosed uses.

It would not be the first time misuse of a provision or device has
occurred. Consider the manner in which the DCMA has been interpreted
by the RIAA, now using it to extort subscriber information from ISPs
and sue filesharing users at the tune of $150,000 per illegal mp3
found. Their first victims - a 71 year-old grandpa and a 12 year-old
honors student living in public housing............

I still fail to see how anyone in their right mind could allow something like this to happen, even under the plause of Homeland Security. Although in the US, it seems most things are ran by the big corporations, and if the corporations have the power, they'll have their way. Someone please tell me this sort of thing is protected under the Patriot Act, just like phone tapping and every other invasion of privacy imaginable. What does it take to make people see their rights being stripped away...
