What happens to your Facebook posts and emails after you die? Can your family have access to them? Can you will these rights to someone else? What happens to the real money that gets banked in virtual game worlds?

We explore these questions of online legacy with John Romano and Evan Carroll, the co-authors of "Your Digital Afterlife" and co-creators of the web site thedigitalbeyond.com

This segment aired on April 20, 2011.
