What is a digital death? Have you left your online passwords in good hands? What digital information needs to be protected upon your death and what needs to be deleted? How can a VAIL assist those you leave behind?
For answers to these questions and more, watch this interesting Huffington Post online interview with a panel that includes Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP partner, Victoria Blachly.
Victoria is the chair for the Oregon State Bar Virtual Assets Work Group, which developed an Oregon Legislative Proposal for statutory changes regarding virtual assets. The proposal will be submitted in 2013 and could be presented to the governor for a law to become effective in 2014. She has also been appointed as an observer to the Uniform Law Commission’s study group that is examining the national issue of access to digital information.
