Many contracts are signed and then faxed. And as a fax is in fact a scanner->modem->printer, I think it should be just fine to use a dedicated scanner as you do. I often send faxes (including contracts) through my office computer by scanning them and sending them to the receiving fax.

It''s better to print out the document, sign it, scan and send as a complete image or fax it. That is, I think, often done in businesses, and should be OK, assuming that US/Canadian/Swedish laws are similar in that ragard.

What about if only the signatures are scanned, and then pasted into a word perfect document?

In the United States The Federal Electronic Signatures Act makes documents signed by facsimile valid evidence of a binding obligation. Other laws make them valid as well. It is a common practice to fax back and forth. As a general practice, however, it is good to fed-ex hard copies to each party. Further, what is to keep them from cutting and pasting new terms as one party suggested is each party will have a copy of the agreement, if the terms do not match, somebody could be in BIG trouble for attempting perjury or attempting to defraud the court.
I''m not so sure about the "mail to yourself" thing, as its easy to replace the contents of a mailed package. My impression was that was a practice under the old copyright law to prove date of creation.

The "Mail to yourself" deal, I forgot to add a small, tiny important detail...DO NOT OPEN THE PACKAGE! If someone was to take you to court or vise-versa then the Judge can open the package with the date of postage from the post office that was imprinted on the envelope or package. You do this with your ideas or copyrights before shelling them out to everyone. Try it.By the United States Constitution and Law I was told it was legal and will hold up rightfully in court.

What isn''t legally binding about something that you can prove the US government itself has given a date to?
