Uhh... have you even looked at the reference in question?  Stephen Mason
is a UK barrister, and he cites digital signature legislation and case law
in the UK, Europe, Asia/Pacific, Africa, and others.  Some of the chapters

  2 International initiatives 
  3 European Union Directive on electronic signatures
  4 England & Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland
  5 International comparison of electronic signature laws

>US law... US courts... US jurisdictions

Tell you what, I'll give you a week or two to go away and read the book, and
then you can post an updated version of your message that actually addresses
the point.
