Friday, September 21, 2012

The September 21, 2012 edition of The Wall Street Journal quoted Matt Daus (Partner, New York) on taxi smartphone application regulations.

As stated in the article, "Technology is moving at lightning speed," and the regulatory process is not, says Matthew Daus, a former New York City taxi commissioner whose law firm, Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf LLP, is advising regulators about new technologies. "We're at a regulatory fork in the road," Mr. Daus adds. The crafting of new rules "has the opportunity to be the greatest potential achievement if it's done right," he says. "Or it could be the biggest disaster ever" if it fails to let the industry benefit fully from the latest technologies."

Matt was interviewed on Australia's Gold Coast Radio program about taxi app regulation in April 2012. He is also the author of a report entitled "Rogue" Smartphone Applications for Taxicabs and Limousines: Innovation or Unfair Competition? - A National Regulatory Review of Safety, Accountability and Consumer Protection Legal Issues.
