Digital and Intellectual Property Estate Planning
Does your estate plan address your digital assets? When you pass away, will family members have access to important passwords? Do you have any patents, copyrights, or other rights to intellectual property? As our world becomes more and more digital, traditional estate planning is insufficient to meet today’s needs. Here are some aspects of estate planning you may not have considered:
- Do you own any bitcoin?
- Have your photos, family movies, and other important documents been digitized? If so, will family members have access to them when you pass away?
- How will you divide up movie collections, books, music, and other digital assets?
- Have you written down important passwords to give family members access to your computer or other devices, internet, cloud storage, etc.? If so, do your family members know where to find those passwords?
- So much of our assets and information depend on technology. If your estate plan does not address digital assets, it may create additional stress for your surviving family members at a time when they are already grieving.
