Default Company defends RFID implant product

Company defends RFID implant product

Joe Vanden Plas / Wisconsin Technology Network | June 1st 2006

Madison, Wis. - The parent company of a Florida manufacturer of radio frequency enabled microchips is stressing the voluntary nature of the product following the signing of a bill prohibiting Wisconsin employers and government agencies from requiring them to be implanted.

Scott Silverman, chairman and CEO of Applied Digital, the parent of VeriChip Corp., said the company's practices are consistent with what the law provides. "In theory, we're in agreement with the bill," Silverman said. "For years now, we've had a strong privacy policy in our company and with our supplier network."

Silverman, however, did take issue with one aspect of the bill, the lack of an exemption for the guardians of high-risk patients with dementia.

Assembly Bill 290, which will prohibit any entity from requiring an individual to undergo the implanting of a microchip, was signed into law by Gov. Doyle. Violators face fines of up to $10,000.

Its chief sponsor, State Rep. Marlin Schneider, D-Wisconsin Rapids, said the legislation breaks new ground in protecting individual privacy rights.

Yeah, well it still doesn't protect people from those little theft-protection tags getting stuck on their clothes! I had to stand there with the store security for five minutes before I figured out that some darned kids stuck one on my coat.
