Expert cyberspace law practitioners have ventured into uncharted legal and conceptual territory to advance the understanding of transactions in and affecting radio frequency identification, near-field communications, and mobile payments. Apple Pay’s launch makes near-field and mobile payments easier than ever before. More than 200,000 retailers in the United States already have near-field readers ready to assist their customers with Apple Pay payments.
Lawyers need to understand the issues emerging in radio-frequency identification devices (RFIDs), near-field communications, and mobile payments generally. These new developments make this book a must-have desk reference for those who counsel payment providers and retailers in explaining the basic issues, technology, and its application to others.
This valuable resource includes such diverse topics as:
• spectrum-regulation in the U.S. and abroad,
• divergent regimes for the protection of consumers privacy in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and India,
• the potential intrusiveness of RFID technology in specialized settings, including government-issued identification documents such as passports and in retail stores,
• the security of the data stored in or derived from RFIDs as a subset of generalized and specialty data-security concerns,
• the integrity of data held in or transmitted by RFIDs, and
• the already-present Internet of Things as a companion to the Internet as most of us have known it.
