The Act changes the requirements of the Georgia Best Evidence Rule relating to the admissibility of reproductions made in the regular course of business. The Act expands the scope of the rule by deleting the requirement that the image be nonerasable and that the reproduction be a permanent preservation of the original. The Act further amends the original Code section by providing that the original need not be accounted for only if the reproduction accurately reproduces or forms a durable medium for reproducing the original.
