Time to re-think those email disclaimers

To all of you who feel you need a legal disclaimer on the bottom of your emails… please review this article.

“[Email disclaimers] are assumed to be a wise precaution. But they are mostly, legally speaking, pointless. Lawyers and experts on internet policy say no court case has ever turned on the presence or absence of such an automatic e-mail footer in America, the most litigious of rich countries.

Many disclaimers are, in effect, seeking to impose a contractual obligation unilaterally, and thus are probably unenforceable. This is clear in Europe, where a directive from the European Commission tells the courts to strike out any unreasonable contractual obligation on a consumer if he has not freely negotiated it. And a footer stating that nothing in the e-mail should be used to break the law would be of no protection to a lawyer or financial adviser sending a message that did suggest something illegal.”

Corner Edge Designs and Develops CES Phones site.

Corner Edge has launched the new CES Phones web site. The site is designed to serve as an sales tool where CES Phones staff and potential customers can access detailed information about the products and services offered. The symbolic key pad in the background takes it’s design cues from the retro styled CES Phones logo. Customers can access the CES Phones portal from a link at the top of the page, and request support as well. Requests submitted from the site are fed directly into the CES Phones ticketing system and prioritized immediately. CES Phones, based in Wilmington Delaware, offers small business and enterprise VOIP solutions. If you think your business would benefit from a lower phone bill visit CESPhones.com.

Corner Edge Design site gets a make over.

Our goal in redesigning design.corneredge.com was to make it more than just a portfolio of design projects and to better highlight key areas of our design services. The new site is geared to offer a quick synopsis of specific design services in areas of ┬ábrand identity, advertising/marketing, package design and corporate communications. The design features the clean look and simple navigation that has become the trademark for the Corner Edge family of websites, yet maintains it’s own personality inherited from the original site. We have not, however, abandoned our portfolio, it too has been redesigned. The new Corner Edge Design Portfolio is accessed through the “PORTFOLIO” link and opens in a new browser window. On computers and Flash enabled devices the portfolio offers an immersive look into the design works of Corner Edge divided into Site Design, Interface Design, Promotion and Audio Video sections. IOS users are not left out, an iPad specific version has been updated too, built with Apple’s Dashcode for maximum compatibility and utilizing common assets with the main site. An new iPhone version is not far behind.┬áBoth versions of the new port folio are dynamically populated through xml feeds. For rich Flash web site design with iOS alternative content contact Corner Edge Solutions at 973-285-9900.
