Legality of Electronic Signatures

by Larry Emmott on July 12, 2007

in General,Management,Security

The following comes from:

TITLE I—ELECTRONIC RECORDS AND

SIGNATURES IN COMMERCE

SEC. 101. GENERAL RULE OF VALIDITY.

(a) I

N GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any statute, regulation, or

other rule of law (other than this title and title II), with respect

to any transaction in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce—

(1) a signature, contract, or other record relating to such

transaction may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability

solely because it is in electronic form; and

(2) a contract relating to such transaction may not be

denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because

an electronic signature or electronic record was used in its

formation.

Of course this is a law written by lawyers so it can not be as simple as these two paragraphs in fact there are a total of 13 pages you can find here.
