Successione mortis causa nel patrimonio digitale e diritto alla protezione dei dati personali

Di Anna Anita Mollo -

The death event, which has always been considered the mere natural fact of the cessation of man’s physical life, now acquires legal relevance also in the digital world, given the multiplicity and complexity of the legal situations connected to it. In the study of digital heritage, the central issue is represented by the role played by contracts concluded between users and Internet service provider which, lacking legislation, represent the only source of discipline. In this context, it became very important to understand, not so much how to be able to dispose of digital assets after death, but what are the limits to the succession in the digital heritage.
