RFID e Copyright

RFID e Copyright

Questes relativas a privacidade e direito de prorpiedade intelectual. O primeiro uma provocao (via o site de Aram Bartholl), sugerindo que coloquemos etiquetas em nossas ID’s para doar nossa propriedade intelectual aps a morte. Vdeo e sticker podem ser baixados aqui:



“Why let all of your ideas die with you? Current Copyright law prevents anyone from building upon your creativity for 70 years after your death. Live on in collaboration with others. Make an intellectual property donation. By donating your IP into the public domain you will ‘promote the progress of science and useful arts’ (U.S. Constitution). Ensure that your creativity will live on after you are gone, make a donation today.”

O segundo vem de um post do Engadget mostrando como cartes RFID esto vulnerveis a ao de hackers, expondo a nossa ID a clonagens e outros desvios:

“Even as RFID tech grows more and more ubiquitous, fears about its safety and security haven’t dwindled — which is why we’re just disappointed, not surprised, to learn that over 1 billion RFID cards based on the Milfare Classic RFID chip are now at risk. Two different teams of security researchers managed to crack the encryption on the cards, which form the basis of a national payment system in the Netherlands and are used widely in other applications around the world. With the encryption broken, hackers can now make perfect clones of the cards, spoiling all that radio-frequency fun. There’s no word on how easy that actually is yet, however — one of the two hacks will be demonstrated later this week, and the other is being kept secret — but still, it might be time to go back to cash and bump-proof locks, eh?”
