Best Evidence Rule

A rule that states that when a document is used as evidence in a court proceeding, the original document must be introduced. Copies will not be accepted as evidence unless certain exceptions to the rule apply.

Similar items:
The “sequencing” of the chain of evidence follows this order: collection and identification; analysis; storage; preservation; presentation in court; return to owner. Chain of evidence shows who obtained the evidence; where and when the evidence was obtained; who secured the evidence; who had control or possession of the evidence. The process by which an object is uniquely identified in a court of law.
Computer evidence is a copy of a document stored in a computer file that is identical to the original. The legal “best evidence” rules change when it comes to the processing of computer evidence. Another unique aspect of computer evidence is the potential for unauthorized copies to be made of important computer files without leaving behind a trace that the copy was made. This situation creates problems concerning the investigation of the theft of trade secrets (e. g. , client lists, research materials, computeraided design files, formulas, and proprietary software).
The unauthorised duplication of an original recording for commercial gain without the consent of the rightful owner; or the packaging of pirate copies that is different from the original. Pirate copies are often compilations, such as the “greatest hits” of a specific artist, or a genre collection, such as dance tracks.
Evidence that is relevant to determining a fact. The fact that the evidence seeks to determine must be material (in other words, related) to the case. In addition, the evidence must be competent, meaning that it must have been obtained legally. Evidence that results from an illegal search would be inadmissible because it is not competent.
