The Conversation: Estate planning for your digital assets

Thanks to Jonathan B for throwing this my way, from The Conversation: Estate planning for your digital assets. “The law is very clear about handling paper documents and other physical property when someone dies. But as a law professor at Drake Law School who has been studying property transfers for years, I’ve seen that laws, regulations and court rulings are only recently trying to figure out how to handle the ever-changing realm of digital technology. So far, in most cases the information is controlled by the companies that store it – regardless of what users want or direct to happen after their death.”
