Yeah I bet there’s plenty that are looking forward to inheriting that huge collection of VHS tapes their parents or grandparents have stockpiled all those years ago, I’m sure they’ll make top dollar for those

No one wants your Disney VHS collection, or anything else really. Do everyone a favor and get rid of it or have plans for it after you expire.

Well considering what I have, not just movies, they'll miss out on close to 6 figures if they don't take the time to sell what i have. Not that I would care, I'd be dead. Their loss, not mine.

I was referring to people like us, who most have some kind value with a collection. Not just crusty VHS tapes of mainstream movies that thrift shops can'teven give away for free. Of course, if you collect a bunch of mainstream crap, that stuff devalues quick as hell. A lot of stuff I buy stays in value or goes up. I also have a big videogame collection. Old and new. As well as other stuff.

My wife knows that if I die she should get one of my friends to sell my physical collection because it'll be worth a few quid and she wouldn't know where to start!

I'm hoping I get a few more years before we need to worry about digital, and I hope the situation will improve as it becomes the default. Digital rights should be transferrable given it's now the default 'ownership' model for music, movies, games, etc. and that usually means one person in a household deals with the accounts and payments. At the very least they need to accept transferring things to a spouse even if they won't accept inter-generational rights passing down.

How would Apple know that a customer had died?
At least in the US the Social Security office posts the SSN and legal name of dead people. If Apple is monitoring those reports they may automatically close your account. I expect they retain the data for some time since the SSA sometimes mis-reports an individual's death.

Apple is pretty clear on this: they await reception of a death certificate.

I'm sure by the time it's an issue for many of us, deaths will be automatically recorded in the cloud and accessible to all Big Tech companies.

Okay, you meant “ who cares? I’m dead “

Maybe being able to access your digital library depends on whether you to a good pace or a bad place.

Good place gets you movies you love, bad place subjects you to movie you don’t like

Apple expressly states no survivorship rights in those Terms and Conditions no one thinks are significant.

As for my physical collection the kids have already stated they want to inherit them and don't want me to re sell them.
I never sell them now and only rarely give them away if I have multiple copies due to upgrades.

Good to hear, I guess you're in the minority whose kids have similar tastes!

Interesting about the survivorship rights, I guess they would need to renegotiate with every studio to change that. Which worked for 4K upgrades, but still...

If you were really keen you could program a bot to periodically log in to your account so it doesn't become inactive. This would work until Apple or the sun imploded, whichever comes first.

Well I don’t know about other countries but unless Apple has a person or program monitoring for my obituary then they won’t know I have died. Unless they use my date of birth and call at 75, 80, etc to see if I have kicked the bucket.

I have already shared my password with other family members to watch movies (Apple’s Family Share doesn’t suit as anyone on it can’t buy their stuff, I would be charged) and they can use it not.

Everyone on my Family Sharing uses Apple gift cards. I'm not charged.
