Abstract

The increased acquisition of digital objects over time has grown in the 21 st century to represent objects of value as digital assets. Many people who plan their lives are unaware of the transfer and ownership challenges associated with digital legacy. This paper discusses the burden of digital legacy management and the need for regulatory reform in the transition of digital objects to digital assets. A study of thirty two (n=32) Australians over the age of 65 identified critical issues in the transfer, ownership, management and mobility of digital objects under legacy conditions.
