EPC Privacy For all those who prefer legislation or regulation to self-regulation... upon what exactly shall regulation be based? We have no knowledge of abuse, no examples to use, little information of any kind regarding the abuse of EPC in the realm of privacy. We also don't know the benefits of EPC to balance the potential for abuse. It is not a good idea to regulate while ignorant. Let's see what happens and what problems (if any) arise before passing laws regarding something we know little about. The only law we need now is one that PREVENTS local laws for at least 3 years to give everyone a chance to see what is needed before launching a moral crusade.
