One thing that has puzzled me for a while is the question – Who owns the content of a social network account after the user has passed away. Naturally I would assume that the next of Kin would be the legal patron of the content. However the problems arise with access to that account, and how a friend / family member gains access to an account to make sure that the account isn’t abused. As a flickr member and someone who enjoys taking photographs, i would want ownership of those photos to be passed to my loved ones. So where does the law stand on this issue?
