[i][color=indigo]This Monday, Feb. 27, 2012 file photo shows Karen Williams looking at a portrait of her son Loren Williams at her home in Beaverton, Ore. A group of influential lawyers says it has an answer to that pesky question of what should happen to your Facebook, Yahoo and other online accounts when you die. The Uniform Law Commission was expected on Wednesday to endorse a plan that would automatically give loved ones access to all digital accounts, unless otherwise specified in a will. The legislation would have to be adopted by individual state legislatures to become law. But if it does, the bill would make {201c}death switches{201d} popular tools in estate planning, allowing people to decide which accounts should die when they do. {201c}This is something most people don{2019}t think of until they are faced with it. They have no idea what is about to be lost,{201d} said Karen Williams of Beaverton, Oregon, who sued Facebook for access to her 22-year-old son Loren{2019}s account after he died in a 2005 motorcycle accident.
