I suspect the question really hinges on the party/ies you're interacting
with.  I also suspect that finding out what constitutes a legal
signature might be an interesting area of research.

Note that a binding contract can be based on a handshake, verbal, X, or
quadruplicate triple-signed forms.  A large part of the value lies in
being able to substantiate existence and terms of the agreement after
the fact.

Other than that, Larry Rosen (larry@rosenlaw.com) is among the
technically-proficient lawyers I'd point people at.
