Comments Re: Pay on the Go

We are pleased that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is exploring the consumer protection policy issues related to contactless payment systems. This is an area of growing concern, especially as payments and mobile communications are poised to converge. As is often the case, law and public policy have not kept up with innovations in technology and business to ensure that consumers can enjoy the benefits of contactless payment with the confidence that they have strong legal protections should problems arise.
