Clearing the Cloud: Management of Digital Assets in Estate Planning
Presenter: Kathy Wilson, Partner and Lizia Lim, Senior Associate at Aitken Partners
Now that we are well into the digital age, digital assets are ever increasing, to the point where most Australian adults would now have multiple digital assets. Despite their prevalence and importance, they are commonly overlooked in the estate planning process.
It is increasingly important for willmakers to consider the management of their digital assets after death, but there are many challenges associated with this.
- Should I give my executor a list of my passwords?
- What happens to my Facebook account after my death?
- What difficulties will my executor face when trying to close my trading and credit card accounts?
- Who has the power to stop automatic debiting of my bank account to pay my ISP?
This presentation will cover the following topics:
- What are digital assets?
- Ownership of digital assets
- Management of digital assets
- Bequeathing a digital asset
