Digital rights are becoming more of an issue and in today's world we need to take heed of what we might need to do to permit our family or executor of estate access to our digital assets—photographs, documents etc.

Apple has a strict data protection policy which includes non-disclosure of other people's data stored on someone's account, including the deceased's without a court order. A widowed Canadian woman wanted her husband's password and Apple refused saying they would need a court order. The widow did not have access to her husband's Apple ID. A person's Apple ID is tied to their payment information and other sensitive data, Apple has instituted strong safeguards. The daughter wanted to download a card game from her late father's Apple computer to her mother's IPad. The family reached out to the Canadian Broadcasting System's consumer help line, Go Public, who went to apple, and then Apple apologized for the "misunderstanding" and the widow was given access. Apple did not say if they would change their policy going forth. See: and;

In another case, Matter of Estate Swezey, an executor of the decedent's estate petitioned to turnover photographs stored in the decedent's ITunes or ICloud account by Apple Inc. Apple informed the executor that a court order would be required. The executor was the decedent's spouse and he was left all personal property and the residuary estate. The deceased took the majority of family photos and stored them on his Apple account—he used his iPhone for the photographs. While the will did not specify digital assets, the court found that in today's world digital assets in cyberspace are to be included. This was a New York State case, and the New York Legislature enacted EPTL Article 13-A ( ) applying traditional laws to this type of property, thereby giving fiduciaries the right to gain access, manage and delete digital assts. Apple was required to disclose the photographs stored in the deceased's Apple account.

Apple CEO Tm Cook has not been shy about his thoughts regarding consumer online privacy. He has suggested a data broker clearinghouse. He advocates for greater oversight regarding handling of consumer data. He said, "In 2019, it's time to stand up for the right to privacy — yours, mine, all of ours." His essay published in Time Magazine, he charges Google and Facebook as companies that amass "huge user profiles" data breaches and the vanishing ability to control our own digital lives."
He called on Congress to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation. Cook believes there four principles:
1. Right to have personal information minimized. strip identifying information from customer data or avoid collecting it
2.The right to knowledge- knowing what data is being collected and why.
3. The right to access. Companies should make it easy for you to access, correct and delete your personal data.
4. Right to data security, without which trust is impossible.
