Dealing with Death & Divorce in today’s Digital World

Extract from Elly’s post on this – subject looks really interesting and explores issues that are only just emerging:

My interest area this time is leading a session on how we deal with death of a partner or a divorce in this technological age – how do we decide on how the shared digital information that a couple have accumulated is distributed or shared?

In the case of the sudden death of a partner, how do you access their e-mail accounts and stored online information? What do you do in the case of certain services that are registered in their name, such as Video on demand services?

Alternatively, if a divorce is messy and one partner chooses to lock their ex-partner out of some online information (e.g. a shared e-mail account), how do you go about either preventing or resolving this?
