Autographs are going digital. Apple has filed a patent that would allow authors to sign their names electronically to a reader’s e-book. The patent allows for authentication of signatures either by an embedded certificate or an uploaded picture of the author and reader. Some signatures could be authenticated only in a designated “interactivity zone,” such as a book signing. Apple has not yet set a release date for the application.
