    Well, hopefully the still-unfolding Righthaven case of legal trolls like this getting fined into the ground, will set a precedent and exert some deterrent pressure. The more this keeps up, the more likely we are to see more aggressive anti-frivolity measures being taken.

    “It is also true, however, that as of the date of its enactment, and to my knowledge even today, the expiration date of a credit card isn’t actually validated ”

    This is not true; I’ve personally had transactions rejected when I’ve mistyped an expiration date.

    And the point of the regulation is to prevent fraud. Some states have similar rules. I’ve personally had my account information stolen; I can tell you that a lot of damage can be done by someone with an account number and expiration date.
