CUNY- RFID is a radio-based identification system that utilizes tags with computer chips containing digital information that can be used to track and identify humans, animals, and inanimate objects. The digital information contained in the microchip can be read through the use of an RFID reader. There are two types of RFID tags. An active RFID tag is battery powered and emits a regular signal. In contrast, a passive RFID tag is powered only when in contact with a reader. D. Zachary Hostetter, When Small Technology is a Big Deal: Legal Issues Arising from Business Use of RFID, 2 SHIDLER J. L. COM. & TECH. 10 (2005), available at http://www.lctjournal.washington.edu/Vol2/a010Hostetter.html. Common uses of RFID technology include merchandise inventory control, airline luggage location, electronic tolling systems, and human and animal implants. 8 There are two different aspects of human tracking technology connected with the cellular marketplace. Following issuance of E-911 rules by the Federal Communications Commission in 1997, many cellular companies installed GPS chips in their cell phones. In addition, the location of a powered cell phone can be tracked in real time through the constant and automatic communication between the cell phone and cell towers.
