New technology allows backup tapes to phone home

Lost, misplaced or stolen backup tapes are a common cause of privacy breaches. In response, Fujufilm has developed a LoJack for backup tapes using GPS technology. See: Fujifilm bugs backup tapes with LoJack device The Register. The tapes can be traced and located when being transported.

The next step, I assume, is a gadget that prevents the tapes from being auctioned.
