For TV and film professionals in the field or on set: never forget, lose, or even carry a release form again by being able to pull up releases and collect signature on your iPhone or iPad.
For TV and film professionals in the office: stop dealing with stacks of releases and emailing to track them down because all releases are instantly organized in cloud based folders accessible from anywhere.

Is this legal?
Electronic signatures are valid and legally binding around the world.
They’ve certainly been legal in the US for over a decade. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (a.k.a. the ESIGN Act) became a US federal law enacted by Congress on June 30, 2000.
The general intent of the ESIGN Act is spelled out in the very first section (101.a), that a contract or signature “may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.” This simple statement provides that electronic signatures and records are just as good as their paper equivalents.
Is this secure? I can’t lose these signed releases.
