How can e-signatures or online signatures mean anything?
This is a complex problem and there are many different perspectives.Essentially, e-signatures or online signatures don’t hold water unless they protect you against tamper, fraud, alterations, etc. Also when you have to appear in court with a set of documents, the judge would want to know if the people who’s signatures are on the documents DID in fact sign the documents. One reasonable doubt and the case could be thrown out. Check out this article on one such case.Bankruptcy court judge rejects DocuSign signatures as authentic sources, sanctions attorneySome solutions simply super-impose an image of your signature onto an electronic document. Some, slightly more sophisticated solutions, have security wrappers around those signatures. You can verify those documents as long as you’re viewing those documents inside their application.That is not how real life works.At ZorroSign, one of our co-founders owns the patent on electronic signature (from back in the 90’s) and because we have a proprietary technology called Document 4n6 (Forensics) Token, our signatures and documents have bank-grade security and they are tamper proof. Furthermore, ZorroSign signed documents can be validated and authenticated both digitally and in print. A user can grant permission to a third party (say a judge) to view, verify and authenticate documents signed by ZorroSign. Users can use our free mobile app to authenticate, verify, signatories, attachments, view audit trail and more.I invite you to check out our solution at http://www.zorrosign.com
Have you considered making an online signature course?
No.60% of our software development work is training. We use the analytics and knowledge gained from every project to make the subsequent work a little bit better.What was signature work a few years ago seems somewhat primitive today. Our internal learning is non-stop, encompassing software, LMS systems, standards like SCORM and XAPI, the science and philosophies of learning, and reviews and analysis of recent projects.I firmly believe that we have to move forward all the time. There is no standing still. We’re either improving or going backward.We do prototypes and templates all the time, but the purpose of those is far different than a signature course.

In California A Power of Attorney does not require notarization unless the document to be signed by the individual holding the power itself requires notarization, for example documents affecting a transfer or encumbrance of real property.
