Legal implications

This question is for the inventors amongst us. Has anyone ever patented the use of an embedded NFC tag or RFID chip? Somebody in the US is trying to. Thought y’all should know. Here is the first application:
US patent 2016/0112097 A1

Interesting. It looks like they are trying to patent the concept of putting NFC chips into stones and gems for jewelry. We do have a provisional patent soon to be converted to a full patent application, but it’s more expansive than just simple NFC tags in skin… we’ve been doing that so long its probably public domain at this point.

Thanks for the tidbit!
