Default New Credit Card Advertisng Internet Laws

In Australia new credit laws have been introduced to force any websites advertising or comparing finance products, including credit cards to abide by a new set of strict financial reguations. In order to compare credit cards with a website you now need to apply for a credit liscense the same as a bank, financial advisor or mortgage broker would need.

By doing this the Australia government is hoping to make liable any website giving mis-onformation or not abiding by the new finance advertising laws. Do you think this is a good idea and should other countries follow suite, or is this another expample of government trying to interfere in the expansion of the world wide web.
