E-law may not be widely used for years

Daniel Olejár of Comenius University in Bratislava says a recently passed Law on Electronic Signatures may not actually change the way society works for several years. Although the law in theory gives electronic documents the same legal weight as paper documents, allowing business and clerical transactions to be done over the Internet, neither the state administration nor the private sector has the infrastructure needed to make use of it. The law takes effect May 1, following which an Electronic Signatures Office will be created.
