Who owns your email?

Philip Argy will speak about the ever-relevant and exciting topic of “Who owns your email?”.


Who owns your email?  Is there a difference between ownership and access?  Is ownership of a domain name determinative of email ownership?  By reference to a recent case Philip Argy will explore this issue in the context of s. 138(1) of the Evidence Act 1995.  Can a person tender in evidence another person’s email to which they were once given the password if the password has not been changed but the nature of the relationship between the two people is such that the password is unlikely to be given if requested now?
