Living Room - January 2, 2004

What if the government could identify each and every product created on planet earth? What if the government could identify the specific products you own and use product identification to tell if you had attended a political protest? What if stores could create databases of their customers' purchase history to charge discriminatory prices to some customers? None of this is science fiction. Radio Frequency ID (RFID) tags make all this--and more--possible, now. On this Living Room, Kellia Ramares interviews Katherine Albrecht, Director of CASPIAN - Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering - www.nocards.org.
