Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act becomes law in the Virgin Islands
English Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, You Tube, Yahoo, Gmail, icloud: todas, pero solo algunas de las plataformas y herramientas que nos conectan con nuestros seres queridos a través de la tecnología. No hay duda de que estamos viviendo la era digital. ¿Alguna vez se ha preguntado qué pasará con sus cuentas creadas dentro de estas plataformas después de su fallecimiento? En las Islas Vírgenes, los cuidadores de familia que perdieron a sus seres queridos han tenido dificultades para obtener acceso a estas cuentas porque una vez que el propietario de las cuentas se declaró fallecido, las empresas mantuvieron los derechos de propiedad. Pero ya no más. El 12 de enero de 2018, el Teniente Gobernador Osbert Potter promulgó el acto de ley número 32-1032, Acceso Fiduciario Uniforme a los Activos Digitales Revisado, también conocida como RUFADAA por sus siglas en inglés o Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act.
