I searched in the forum to find an answer for my weird question and didn’t found any.

What happens when an author die (I mean for real) with his account? Grant Envato access to his items/account for author’s family / relatives? Because his work will keep generate revenue further.

I know my question sounds very strange. But I’m just curious.

Wish all the best in the world for everyone and long life :)

The person who’s account it is should leave details with next-of-kin – add your passwords etc to your will or leave details with your attorney etc It’s really nothing to do with Envato, it’s a personal issue you should plan for.

It’s been asked/discussed before but I don’t know the thread title. It’s not much different from any other asset. If you’re running a business you have documentation or other information that would become available to the other officers in the company and they would take over managing the account. Your assets are handled the same as any other. If you’re a one man show, you should have some type of documentation that get’s passed on to the next of kin. I don’t think this is any different from any other online business when someone dies and the access to their accounts is inherited.

The simple solution is to make sure you have something like a safety deposit box with login and account information that would be given to the person who inherits your estate. All my wife needs is my email login and she can get any password resets needed if there are logins she doesn’t know. I’m not so sure it’s Envato’s responsibility. There is probably a way to have a notarized power of attorney form that Envato would recognize as a legal transfer of account ownership if there was no other way.

I have already written a paper with instructions, website(s) info and login info. You must be prepared for anything. Everyone should make this a top priority.

Hi,

it seems to be a strange question though it’s an important question as well as we have the right to talk about surviving dependants’ pension, inheritance. This all belongs to someone died.

I know that there’s been a thread about exactly this matter. Couldn’t find back, perhaps someone will remember and post it.

You should deposit your account data for your partner, children… whoever’s got the right in case of shit happens. They should report it to envato and I’m sure everything will find it’s way.

May be support can answer to this question what we should do to keep further incoming saved for bereaved.

The themeforest and videohive guys might have it a bit harder then us audiojungle authors as they have to provide much more support to customers.
