Messi Situation Redux: Regular Certified Mail Beats Burofax But Not by Much
A couple weeks ago, we at Tech Essentials highlighted how Lionel Messi could have saved himself a lot of trouble and even more money by using the Registered Email™ service included in RMail®. Instead of using Burofax (somebody, please find these guys another name!) he could have sent his notice to Barcelona in a Registered Email™ message, thus receiving forensic timestamped and authenticatable proof of content delivered. This message would have been legally accepted and court-admissible in nearly every country in the world. Without clear proof of proper notice to change clubs, Messi has now opted to remain at Barcelona for another year.
