Let's say Bob receives a contract on the computer (probably as a PDF or scanned image). The contract requires Bob's signature.
Would the contract be considered signed if Bob uses a photo editing program and draws his name into the signature line?
What if Bob had written his signature, then scanned it into the computer and then copied and pasted it onto the signature line of the contract? What if Bob reused the same scanned signature for all his contracts he has digital formats of? If this is allowed it almost seems pointless to have a signature, as if another person scanned scanned Bob's signature and copy/pasted it onto a contract it would be considered signed.
