The Association for Automatic Identification and Mobility (aka AIM) has released a position paper on RFID privacy and security. It sure has impressed Data Collection Online, which was a little bit breathless in its report on the position paper:
"The position paper, that also includes position statements on other important RFID issues, can be downloaded, at no cost, from the AIM Store from the following link: https://www.aimglobal.org/estore/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=306.
As the professional association representing the full AIM community of providers and end users, AIM Global is uniquely positioned to deliver clear, unbiased, and credible information on auto ID technologies, a broad category of wireless data transmission and data capturing technologies, encompassing RFID."
I haven't read the position paper (more on that below), but I am not sure how you can say that the lobbying group of the RFID industry is "unbiased". Being unbiased suggests being disinterested, which those who make their livelihoods from the products being discussed really aren't. But I digress ...
