Madison, WI (PRWEB) October 15, 2010
Broadjam.com, a leading music social network that allows musicians to upload and license out their music, became the first company worldwide to allow its users to transfer their accounts to heirs when they die. Broadjam’s musicians can sign up for a free Entrustet.com account and nominate an heir to receive their music and licensing capabilities quickly and easily in the event of their death. Users also nominate a trusted person to serve as their digital executor, who notifies Entrustet when the person passes away.
As a result of the partnership, Broadjam will be instantly notified when one of its users die, allowing the company to take quick and responsible action to secure user information with their heir. “Partnering with Entrustet allows our users to transfer their music to an heir quickly and efficiently if the unexpected occurs,” said Roy Elkins, founder and CEO of Broadjam. “We want to ensure their music will be transferred to the appropriate heir.”

The language states that the partner company will do its best to respect users’ last wishes as stored in their Entrustet.com account. Partners then earn an Entrustet Certification, which is proven by a site seal to display on the bottom of their website.
In the near future, Entrustet plans to unveil a small widget which partners can place in their site’s settings tab, allowing their users to make last wishes without ever leaving the partner’s website.
How many users die each year on various websites?
In Broadjam’s case, it is estimated that 500 of their members die each year. But as Entrustet co-founder Nathan Lustig points out, “Websites of all sizes have a problem. They don’t know when their users are dying or what their users wanted done with their accounts. ” Like Broadjam, other sites such as Facebook, with 3 users dying each minute, are looking for solutions to the
