Jim Lamm Quoted in Morningstar on Digital Estate Planning

On October 3, 2013, I was quoted on Morningstar in the article “Do You Have a Plan for Your Digital ‘Estate’?” by Christine Benz.

The article is an excellent introduction to estate planning for online accounts and other digital property, including the problems fiduciaries and family members face with: (1) passwords; (2) encrypted data; (3) federal and state criminal laws regarding unauthorized access to computer systems (especially the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act); and (4) data privacy laws (especially the Stored Communications Act).

The article also outlines four practical steps to take to incorporate digital property into your estate plan.
