This technology is dangerous. It only benefits big business (tracking their precious products) and government, to track the people through human implantation of RFID chips.

Ask yourself, how do YOU benefit? You lose because you lose all your privacy. You'll walk into a store and they'll know your dress or waist size, they'll know how much you spent last time, they'll know how much you have in the bank right now, they'll know where you just came from, they'll know your political beliefs, etc. What's next, reading your thoughts?

It shouldnt create problems for libraries because compliant technologies are already entering the market.
