New Service Makes Adding e-Signatures to Documents Simple and Free

Via this post on Lawyerist I learned that Adobe has introduced a program that appears to easily enable parties to electronically sign documents. The public beta version of Adobe's "eSignatures" program was rolled out on May 14, and users report that it provides a simple, free and quick way for parties to remotely have their signatures added to a document that is then certified as final, and time and date stamped by Adobe.

TechCrunch writes that the process is "dead simple," and took its reviewer less than two minutes from start to finish. An Adobe source told TechCrunch that eSignatures may eventually be integrated into Adobe's popular service.

Lawyerist notes that one possible concern with eSignatures is the fact that "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."

Adobe has a short video explaining how eSignatures works. Check it out below.
