Resource: Adobe Releases eSignature Tool

Adobe has just released eSignature, a software tool to make affixing digital signatures even easier for legal practitioners.

TechCruch reviewed eSignature earlier this month:

Upload your document, insert the recipient’s e-mail, select a date, insert a message and then sign. The finished document is certified to ensure that it hasn’t been altered since the signature— if it is modified in any way the certification tag disappears. The process is dead simple (it took me less than two minutes from start to finish) and best of all, it’s free.

And Lawyerist reviews it, noting possible concerns:

One, whatever document you are signing at least temporarily sits on Adobe’s servers. If you are concerned about data security and/or confidentiality, this could be an issue. Two, just because you are willing to digitally sign does not mean the other side wishes to do so. That would be my bigger concern, especially given the increasing concerns about cloud computing and security issues.

The application is available as a free download and, according to Adobe, complies with both the U.S. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act) (.pdf) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) (.pdf).
