Protecting Your Digital Estate

What happens to the digital legacy of those who have complicated online profiles, passwords, digital assets such as music and who happen to be—dead?

While general copyright ideas are clear, many are left without permission to access apposite passwords and the estates of these departed people are consequently ripe for plundering by digital grave robbers, the numbers of whom are on the increase. … It is one thing for those left behind to come to terms with their loss, but it is another thing completely if digital grave robbers take over the identity of the deceased person. For somebody who has left a substantial digital identity that legacy needs to be guarded as much as any gravestone in a cemetery.
