The ACA have an "Industry guide to m-commerce"
which details industry obligations and consumer protection when using a
mobile phone for commercial transactions ("m-commerce").
My impression is that phones are more regulated than the Internet, so has
m-commerce more consumer protection than e-commerce? If you use i-mode or
WAP on your phone, do you have different rights than doing the same
transaction via the web on a PC? If there is no difference, why the need
for separate advice on m-commerce?
ps: I am not sure when ACA released the document as I couldn't find a date
on it (nor a copyright notice), nor why they released it in RTF rather than
