Hello folks and welcome once again to the E-Discovery for FDCPA Pro Se Litigants Internet Radio Webinar.  I am your host, Anthony Johnson.

In this episode we will discuss how electronic evidence differs from paper evidence.  Because of its informal nature, electronic mail has encouraged senders to write unguarded, unwise and sometime inappropriate comments.  Digital evidence takes on a very different and distinct characteristic than paper evidence and is not just text or data, but also includes audio, video, and graphics. 

Electronic data contains something that is called "metadata" or data about data.  This data is valuable information about the electronic data and is hidden from the printed copy of the electronic file.  Metadata will tell:

  • the means of creation of the data
  • purpose of the data
  • time and date of creation
  • creation or author of the data
  • location on a computer network where the data was created
  • standards used to create the data

The metadata can be viewed for unguarded comments by the authors of the documents.
