I'm looking for information regarding the legality of an AUP.  Is it
absolutely necessary to have every employee sign it or is it 
sufficient to indicate the AUP is a condition of employment?  

depends completely in which jurisdiction you are residing.
here in the netherlands afaik one can't fire an employee just because he's
watching porn or doing other unwanted stuff unless it's written in a policy
document. The emloyer needs to do all that's necessary to make the employee
aware of this policy. 

Best thing of course is to have it then signed by employee

Can anyone offer some insight on the topic?  Any lawyers in the crowd?
