 A UK legal precedent for eSignatures

In February this year, a further legal precedent for eSignatures was made in the UK.

Take a look at this link for details of the High Court ruling on Bassano vs Toft & Ors.

It's a bit dry and long winded but the salient points can be found in paragraphs 39-46.

In essence it reaffirms the validity of electronic signatures and explains that a signature does not have to be your name - it just needs to be an identifying mark indicating the intent to sign.

Happy reading!
