Default Comment wanted for Guardian article on digital assets

Hi all,

Iím writing an article for The Guardian on what happens to someone's digital assets after their death, and would like to speak to anyone who as struggled to gain access to a deceased family memberís email, social networking, gaming, or online banking accounts.

It seems to have become an increasingly common problem in recent years, yet the law remains unclear as to what rights the family have to access or ownership of a loved oneís online accounts after their death. This can lead to a situation where valuable documents, irreplaceable photographs, and personal emails are lost forever.

From my reseach it seems that many of the major email and online banking providers can acerbate an already difficult situation by delaying access to the deceasedís accounts, citing terms of service agreements and security protocols. Has anyone experienced this at all? And would you be willing to be interviewed for the article?
