My understanding -- and this is incomplete information -- is that it 
falls down to the legal signature.  A photocopy or facsimile of a 
document with a legal signature is considered to be a legal document for 
record keeping purposes.  A digital-only scan of that document is not. 
This is a legal distinction, not a technical one.
