The article focuses on issues related to the sale of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags in Europe. Dubbed the barcodes of the future, the European Union (EU) says that more than 1 billion RFID tags were sold worldwide in 2006, and this figure could climb by more than 500 times by 2016. The EU predicts that the European market will grow from €500 million in 2006 to €7 billion by 2016.
