Many of us use the internet everyday, and yet our rights as ‘netizens’ remain largely undefined. And it’s not only states like Iran or China which are limiting internet freedom. Democratic governments also risk stepping in and over-regulating or censoring the net.

So what are the key issues, and how can we address them? Join our expert panel for some answers, featuring columnist David Aaronovitch (chair), activist and blogger Cory Doctorow, international media lawyer Paul Tweed, Heather Brooke, author of The Revolution Will Be Digitised and Index CEO Kirsty Hughes for a discussion on who really controls our free expression online.
