I read an interesting article in the regional paper this morning, about a woman whose young adult son died in a motorcycle accident. Her son had a Facebook account, and the mother found the password, and wanted to be able to access it to read the nice things his friends had posted after his death. However when she contacted FB notifying them about her son's death, and her desire to have continued access to the account, they shut the account down.
Now she's pursuing a lawsuit against Facebook, so that the courts begin to consider such things as online accounts as "assets", which which someone's beneficiaries should gain access. My guess is that this case alone may result in estate attorneys adding a boilerplate clause/checkoff item to Wills & Trusts, to address such assets.
Any thoughts about accounts & material that only exist online, and access to them?
