"Archival and Digital Legacy, Preserving Your Digital Work"

March 9 at 10AM PST

by Budd Turner

  • When a person dies, their digital footprint persists.
  • Digital providers assume ownership of Intellectual property (IP) created on their servers.
  • Family and workgroup attempts to archive or maintain deceased works are blocked.
  • We worked within system permissions shared by the creator.
  • We tested possible workarounds
  • We contacted providers for account/work access
  • Limited Copy, Move, possible
  • Edit (update), Delete, not possible, without creator account access.
  • Providers reluctant to discuss or allow access to deceased work,(IP).
  • Advance planning needed for adding Trusted Friends and/or family member access to digital accounts in Trusts and/or Wills
  • Everyone needs to learn provider policies and legal requirements for establishing a “Legacy” path of transfer of ownership.
  • Passing your digital footprint when you can no longer login
