Join a panel of leading technology experts for a timely discussion about who owns what on the internet – and if they should.

Award-winning STEM journalist Rae Johnston speaks with tech reporter Angharad Yeo, cyber policy analyst Ariel Bogle, Reset Australia Executive Director Chris Cooper and Technology Editor for The Australian Financial Review Paul Smith.
