FAX only?

IPBiz notes text in a recent IAM post:

I was somewhat baffled when calling multinational company DuPont this afternoon. Trying in vain to speak to a member of its IP group about speaking at the upcoming IP Business Congress on green IP issues, I was informed by a very friendly and profusely apologetic receptionist that any correspondence concerning conferences must be submitted to the office via fax. Yes, you read correctly - fax. You can imagine my bemusement: not only was the company suggesting that I use a somewhat outdated method of communication, but also quite possibly the least environmentally friendly one.

A judge in NJ Superior Court "prohibited" transmission of documents by email, but ok'd transmission by fax.
