Estate planning for Digital Assets is a topic that was covered in a two part article by Oregon Estate Planning Attorney on his Wealth Law blog. In the second part of his article Estate Planning and “Virtual Assets” – Part 2 Michael discusses the importance of determining who should receive your virtual assets and cautions readers in the use of commercial services to hold your virtual assets because of the risk of loss associated with the improper storage or release of the assets to others.
While these are valid points, a bigger concern in my mind is that most of these commercial services appear to violate the the terms of the licenses by allowing others to use your accounts after your death and potentially create liability to your estate. The Digital Asset Protection Trust is the only solution that appears to resolve the legal issues and deal with digital assets correctly. To create a Digital Asset Protection Trust contact a Florida Estate Planning Lawyer to discuss your circumstances.
