Contracts received via a fax machine...
Let's say I type up a contract and print it out.
I then sign this contract (New York).
I then fax it over to a client (Canada).
They sign it, fax it back to me, and keep it for themselves.
- I'd end up with a contract where both of our signatures have gone through the fax machine.
- The client ends up with a contract that has my signature via the fax machine, and his via a pen.
Are both of our contracts equally legal and binding?
