  • Publication number: 20090084862
    Abstract: A system for selecting digital content from at least one content source employs a plurality of RFID enabled objects that are read by one or more RFID readers. The RFID enabled objects may be, for example, RFID enabled media objects or RFID enabled non-media objects, such as any suitable RFID enabled object. Specific combinations of RFID tags and RFID enabled objects, or RFID enabled media objects provide access to more (or different) digital content than the same tags provide alone. A method includes contactlessly reading a plurality of RFID tags associated with a plurality of RFID enabled objects to obtain a plurality of RFID tag information and determining whether each of the read plurality of RFID tag information has been read within a suitable time period with respect to each other. If so, the method includes sending the read plurality of RFID tag information for receipt by a content delivery authorization unit to determine if downloadable content is available for download.
