E-Corporate Law Paper

Have you ever wondered if clicking "I accept" on a website was legally binding?  Or when can you "sign" a document by fax or e-mail?

I presented a paper to the UT-CLE Securites Regulation Conference earlier this month on E-Corporate Law.  The paper analyzes Texas, Delaware, and U.S. federal law regarding electronic contracting and electronic corporate formalities (such as directors taking action by unanimous written consent in lieu of a meeting).  It includes an analysis of the Electronic Signature In Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA).   

A copy of the paper is available on Cantey Hanger's website here:  http://www.canteyhanger.com/content/Clayton_SR11_paper_revised_02_10_11.pdf
