Dead bloggers' society

What happens to the social content belonging to dead people?

Should we be able to link to them in LinkedIN? What about our flickr feeds, social search engines and myriads of logins?

Who should protect the content and context rights of dead bloggers and what about their adwords revenue?

How much of the web actually was published by people who are now dead?

What should the dead-takedown rules be for Yahoo!, Blogger and Wikipedia?

Inspiration:
This is a guy I knew - a corporate blogger who went and died from a stroke on a business trip. The last entry in his blog is in fact an orbituary with sincere comments from his many friends - Poul Antons Blog - pam.blogs.krak.dk/

I'll tell 3 brief related stories and try to get some answers from you guys!
