Macy's, and its subsidiary Bloomingdales, has announced their intended use of RFID Item-Level Tags on their clothing next year. This will allow tracking of all such tags by any readers, which are becoming more commonplace, and correlating with other tags. Read Katherine's best selling book Spychips for a full exposition of the dangers this could entail. Katherine then addresses the lawsuit against Toyota for cyberstalking where the defense is that the plaintiff agreed to be harassed by clicking on an online agreement which had vague terms hidden in the fine print. Please remember our sponsors who help keep us on the air.

Robert Shibley // Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) // Firefly // Free Speech //
Robert talks to Katherine about the absurd lengths the University of Wisconsin (at Stout) has taken against a film professor for posting on his office door a poster with a quote from the highly acclaimed Firefly western sci-fi series. A cautionary poster on the dangers of facism was met with threats of criminal charges. Absolutely jaw-dropping incredible.
