Recently, a new subdivision of property has emerged that many people label as "digital assets," such as accounts used for e-mail, professional and personal data backups, banking, investment, and shopping, domain names and web-hosting accounts, social networking accounts, and avatars for online games. While estate planners have perfected techniques to transfer traditional types of property, many estate planners do not address digital assets when preparing their clients' estates. This presentation educates estate planning professionals on the importance of planning for the disposition of digital assets as well as the techniques available under existing law.
