The legality of email disclaimers has never really been tested in
this jursisdiction. However I think Kevin has a very valid point. I
am not a solicitor nor am I allowed to present legal advice, I am
simply a law student, however I will check with my solicitors and
other sources and do a bit of research into this, if that is okay,
and report my findings back to the list.
However in the meantime I would be of the opinion that further
postings to this list with legal disclaimers be either:
b) The user does not send email from an account that automaticaly
appends a legal disclaimer.
c) A acceptance clause be instered into Terms of Service or the
constitution or acceptable usage guidelines.
If this poses a problem I wil gradly give anyone an email account on
my systems that so that they can used a web based mailer, or if they
in fact provide a static ip address, I "may" allow them to relay,
both of these offeres are subject to certain conditions, which I will
agree with any offeree should the so wish to accept this offer.
As a side note, to encourage more people to take part in AGM's, votes
etc, should we not now consider developing some type of reasonably
secure way of electronic voting?
