Electronic Sigatures in Law 2ed, 2007  $435.50 

By Stephen Mason

Electronic signatures are ubiquitous. Every person that uses an email account, cash card, debit card or credit card uses a form of electronic signature. Make sure you know how best to advise your clients on the complexities of the topic.

This book considers the function of the signature in 98 jurisdictions, and demonstrates the flexibility of the way judges in common law countries approach the difference between function and form: Australia, Canada, England and Wales, India, Ireland, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa and New Zealand. The history of the signature in these countries illustrates how judges have applied the principles of the law to changes in technology, from the telegram, telex, facsimile and now email and the internet.

Electronic signatures have featured in the following areas of law: employment, family, divorce proceedings, formation of contracts, insurance, wills, public administration, judicial use, Statute of Frauds, property transactions, local Government, planning, criminal and corporations.

The forms of electronic signature covered by the case law include: typing a name into a document (word document or email), the name in an email address, the click wrap signature, PIN, scanned manuscript signature (also terms 'digitalized'), biodynamic version of a manuscript signature and digital signature.

This new 2nd edition has been fully revised and updated in line with new case law, including:

Australia: Faulks v Cameron and McGuren v Simpson,

Canada: Beatty v First Exploration Fund 1987 and Company, Limited Partnership and Re Newbridge Networks Corporation

China: Shanghai Yaken Enterprise-Image Designing Co. Ltd. v Wel-Mart, China Investment Co. Ltd and Yang v Han,
