~ RFID - Future litigation ~
EPIC (Electronic Privacy Information Center) interviewed executives on the commercial use of RFID tags. Roland Edwards of Global Communications admitted that, "Personal information is not stored on chip but is likely associated in store databases."
The penetration of this technology in the retail market, from tracking goods to associating those goods with specific customers will be driven by the big arm twisters, Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense.
RFID may also penetrate the legal world through the need to manage litigation.
