I have plenty of mp4 movies on my server that will just set itself to admin with no password after I do not log in within a 6 month time frame.

  But what about the millions of dollars spent on digital content?
We all know your favorite DVD will become scratched, and will be worthless after a few years. But the possibility of your purchases lasting a long time is more relevant today with more reliable storage. Will it be the case of my boring 2D movies being laughed at by my kids and their 3D holographic displays? I do have a collection of written material, photos, home video, and a database I would like my descendants to have access to.

I can see the lawyers now grabbing for a fee, and the government digging in to tax your digital life in an inheritance tax."
