Die Presse „Pitfalls in Digital Inheritance“

Partner and inheritance law expert Dr. Gerold Oberhumer addresses an increasingly relevant issue in his op-ed for Die Presse. In particular, he examines the issues that can arise in practice when it comes to the inheritance of digital assets: Personal access data to online platforms are often withheld from descendants after the death of the user, leading to considerable problems.

In his op-ed, Dr Gerold Oberhumer also explains why it is so important to make the right arrangements for the digital legacy in advance, and why caution is advised with commercial providers who want to manage it.

The entire op-ed can be read here.
