What consumers are saying about Levi's spychipping:
Are you kidding me? Test this.. Goodbye Levis." --Mark
"Good luck in your [decision] and neglecting
the privacy of your customers that bought your products. In sales there
is a rule I have followed for many years and that is the rule of 250.
For all I do right or wrong each one I deal with will talk to 250 other
people in due time about me. Your decision to invade our lives, (and
this will of course escalate) will certainly reflect on your bottom
line in due time." --Michael H.
"I will from now on abstain from buying
any of Levi Strauss products until I am aware that Levis will not be
using Rfid tagging in any of its products or production process. I will
also make sure to inform all my friends about Levi's attack on my privacy
and recommend that they abstain from using or acquiring Levis products." --David M.
"I am extremely wary of buying anything
with a chip that can track me home or anywhere else I might go..I don't
like the idea of big brother watching even when I go to the bathroom,
so I will no longer buy Levi's or Dockers if I even suspect there might
be a RFID chip in them. I've worn Levi's for 40 years, but that is about
to stop with this RFID spyware. Please don't do this to us!" --Duane
"This message is for Levis and Dockers.
I will NEVER buy your products again, even if you decide NOT TO put
the RFID chips in your clothes etc. I will not buy them because in the
first place you should have never even thought about it to put chips
in them. A sensible suggestion: if you want to tag, tag yourselves not
others." --Edna, Canada
"I'm within my rights when I tell
you that I will NEVER buy another Levi product. Your sneaky-ass approach
has violated public trust. Just think... news of your activities is
relatively low-level now and not a lot of people are aware of your deceptive
little trick. Just wait 'til this gets wider play. ... People don't
like it when they get screwed by a company they thought they could trust." --R.C.
"Goodbye Levi...chip my clothes? I'll
ditch your product." --Mike
