  • Take your mp3 collection to the grave?

    The other day I was pondering the idea of what is supposed to happen when you die after spending potentially 10's of thousands of dollars LEGALLY downloading mp3s from iTunes and similiar websites? Is your next of kin supposed to delete them from your computers and mp3 players? Or, can they sell your LEGAL collection of mp3s to someone else (I'm sure many people have sold their dead relatives records and tapes over the years)? I'm just wondering what other people think about this. I haven't found too much on the web regarding this. I'm sure Apple's view would be that they have to be deleted. I wonder what's going to happen in say the next 20-30 years when this becomes a bigger concern.

    you my friend think of the wierdest things yet im interested in what the answer would be but if they are left in a will they would be transfered to the person who they are being given so they would be legal with the next of kin simple as that

        If you inherit a computer - the government requires you to pay death taxes and income taxes on it. Does the government evaluate the software on the machine, too? (I HIGHLY doubt it)

        How about if the machine was a homebrew - and there are no receipts?
        Good question!
