Bill ensures emails, photos won't die with you

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A group of influential lawyers says it has an answer to the question of what should happen to your Facebook, Yahoo and other online accounts when you die.

The Uniform Law Commission was expected to endorse a plan Wednesday to automatically give loved ones access to a deceased person's digital accounts, unless otherwise specified in a will. To become law in a state, the legislation would have to be adopted by the state's legislature. But if it does, designating such access could become an important tool in estate planning, allowing people to decide which accounts should die when they do.

The plan is likely to frustrate some privacy advocates, who say people shouldn't have to draft a will to protect sensitive files.
