August 16, 2012
The Mobile Payments Industry Workgroup the last couple of years has worked to get its arms around the multiple regulatory agencies concerned with mobile payments, as well as the many technology and market forces driving the industry.

While the recommendations include close monitoring of privacy, prepaid, and services for low and moderate income consumers, the group recognizes the downside risk of new regulatory oversight over a new industry trend that has strong upside potential for consumers. A finding that premature regulation is not warranted is good news indeed.
