2015 House Bill 5034

House Roll Call 438: Passed

To create a new law giving fiduciaries authorized by other state laws to oversee or manage the property of an estate or a vulnerable individual access and authority over the person’s “digital assets” and accounts, defined as “electronic record in which a user has a right or interest.” See also House Bill 4072, which amends an existing state law to do the same thing, which also clarifies rights to an online username, word, character, code, or contract right under a terms-of-service agreement. The bill would also provide a way for an individual's heirs to gain access to and possession of his or her digital property after death.
