      "Civil libertarians cheered yesterday upon news that Wisconsin
      Governor Jim Doyle signed a law making it a crime to require an
      individual to be implanted with a microchip. Activists and authors
      Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre joined the celebration,
      predicting this move will spell trouble for the VeriChip
      Corporation, maker of the VeriChip human microchip implant.

      The VeriChip is a glass encapsulated Radio Frequency Identification
      tag that is injected into the flesh to uniquely number and identify
      people. The tag can be read silently and invisibly by radio waves
      from up to a foot or more away, right through clothing. The highly
      controversial device is also being marketed as a way to access
      secure areas, link to medical records, and serve as a payment device
      when associated with a credit card.

      "We're not even aware of anyone attempting to forcibly implant
      microchips into people," says Albrecht. "That lawmakers felt this
      legislation was necessary indicates a growing concern that the
      company's product could pose a serious threat to the public down the
      road."

      Although the company emphasizes that its chip is strictly voluntary,
      recent statements suggest this could easily change. VeriChip
      Chairman of the Board Scott Silverman has been promoting the
      VeriChip as a partial solution to immigration concerns, proposing it
      as a way to register guest workers, verify their identities as they
      cross the border, and "be used for enforcement purposes at the
      employer level." He told interviewers on the Fox News Channel that
      the company has "talked to many people in Washington about using
      it."

      The company has also confirmed it has been in talks with the
      Pentagon about replacing military dog tags with VeriChip implants.
