Euro Parliament: No Significant RFID Privacy Impact

Privacy has long been mentioned as an area of negative impact for the broad use of RFID tags, from the RFIDJournal: " ... Issued by the European Parliament's Scientific Technology Options Assessment committee, the report finds that the use of RFID to date has not had significant negative impacts on the privacy of individuals, though it does call for transparency ... ". Have tracked and have been involved in this area for some time. Although there is some weaseling in the 'to date' above, this is a very positive statement for the industry. I think it it will still have to wait for some more technical developments and shakeouts before it becomes broadly applicable.
