Privacy: RFID President Responds To 'Spychips' Book


Nicholas Chavez, president of radio frequency identification company RFID Ltd., has published a response to a book called “Spychips”, written by Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre and offered to engage with the two authors for benefit of consumers.

In a statement announcing the publishing of the response Chavez asked Albrecht and McIntyre to participate on an RFID advisory board and offered to help them become "certified" in RFID technology.

In a 24-page document Chavez has attempted to refute arguments made by Albrecht and McIntyre in their book that RFID chip deployment is an invasion of privacy. The publication of the book has sparked off a debate over whether the use of RFID chips by large corporations is part of a conspiracy between big business and government that will ultimately see RFID tags used everywhere.
