When You Die, Will Your Digital Assets Go to Hell?

Presented by:  Sharon D. Nelson, Esq. and John Simek

The acquisition of digital assets happened so suddenly that the law was wholly unprepared to deal with it. Ask most lawyers and other professionals to define a digital asset and they will be clueless. While most people recognize that social media posts, e-mails and texts may constitute digital assets, they often fail to think of the real-life value of property in software such as Second Life, or that IDs and passwords, used to manage the receipt and payment of bills or the management of bank accounts or stocks, also constitute digital assets. How about our electronic collections of books, photos, movies and music?  How are such assets handled when you die or become disabled? As they say in the movies, “it’s complicated.”

Our experts will discuss:

  1. Defining digital assets
  2. Current state laws addressing digital assets
  3. Strategies for dealing with different kinds of digital assets
  4. Sample language to include in wills and trusts

Our location is Wolferts Roost Country Club.  Registration is at 4:15 P.M. with the program from 4:30 to 6:10 P.M. Dinner immediately follows.  Tickets are $75 members or first time guests; non-members are $100.
