+ - Federal Law Needed to Safeguard Digital Afterlives->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: A new paper from Professor Jason Mazzone at the University of Illinois calls for federal laws to regulate what happens to digital accounts after the account holder's death. Mazzone argues that Facebook and other online services have policies for deceased users' accounts that do not adequately protect the individual property and privacy interests at stake. The full text of the paper (called "Facebook's Afterlife") is also available at this link: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2142594
