Law - "What (Legally) Happens to Our Social Media Accounts When We Die?"

This new post on The Volokh Conspiracy, authored by Kenneth Anderson, points to this 67-page student Comment, “What Happens to Our Facebook Accounts When We Die?: Probate Versus Policy and the Fate of Social-Media Assets Postmortem,” by Kristina Sherry, appears in the December 2012 Pepperdine Law Review (40 Pepp. L. Rev. 185 (2012).

BTW, Part I is headed "(Don't) friend) the reaper: An introduction to digital death's complexities."

And under "State legislative responses," Indiana's provisions re electronic access rights and the custodian are discussed on p. 34 of the document.
