House Sub-committee hearing round-up

Filed under: — Laura @ 5:34 pm

On July 14 the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce Sub-committee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection (what a mouthful!) held a hearing, “Radio Frequency Indentification (RFID) Technology: What the Future Holds for Commerce, Security and the Consumer.”

Transcripts and prepared testimonies should be available within a month or so. I’ve made links to articles reporting on the hearing in the extended post. Those on both sides of the issue trot out the same arguments we’ve already heard. One thing worth considering, however, is the notion of general privacy legislation covering all types of technologies. The Center for Democracy and Technology advocates such an approach.
