Re: Duplicate Contracts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I do not have a special knowledge of the US law, but as far as I know, in
English law, an original is a primary evidence and a copy is a secondary
(and less reliable) evidence of a document. This distinction would be made
if one were to prove a document (the contract, in your case) in a court of
law. It, therefore, appears a very good practice to have two originals, each
one signed in ink.
