Credit cards no longer having signatures

I’m writing a “U.S. News & World Report” article about how credit cards are phasing out signatures. I’m interested in hearing from credit card, banking and possibly security experts who want to weigh in one whether this no more signatures when signing for a credit card or debit card payment is a good thing, bad or somewhere in between. And if any handwriting experts happen to read this and would like to comment, I’d be interested in hearing from you. Does this continue the likelihood that someday cursive handwriting will be a lost art?
