21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 8 - Digital Assets Practice: 3 New Practice Opportunities
Richard L. Hermann, 2017.
Examine how Digital Assets Practice could be a ground-floor opportunity. The march of technology has created a vast storehouse of individual and corporate digital assets. Until very recently, these were not included in people’s estate plans. But since estate plans are designed to pass assets to one’s heirs, digital assets are becoming increasingly important factors in estate planning.
Business owners and individuals must now be concerned with what will happen to their digital assets once they pass from the scene. In addition to emotional value (e.g., family photos, letters/emails preserved in an electronic format), digital assets have come to have considerable monetary value as well. Take online bank accounts for example. If these are not included in estate plans, survivors may not be able to access them.
