Trust is one of the most important elements in building any online community, particularly in the ‘share’ economy as possessions, homes, resources, and skills are traded, rented, and sold.

This panel explores different strategies and approaches to building a responsible and secure community marketplace. Experts from within the industry will share successes and failures, risks and rewards of community marketplaces.

We will discuss features to integrate into your platform to develop trust and safety within your community marketplace, as well as when and how to incorporate social media to strengthen community ties. The panel will also present different approaches to user disputes and complaints, insurance policies and liability, and customer service.

Sync licensing is a primary revenue stream for many artists.

During this panel we’ll examine the latest developments in synchronization licensing strategy and monetization. Panelists will delve into the details of content ID, micro syncs and multi channel networks, while focusing on the best ways to monetize content on YouTube and other online platforms. We will discuss innovative approaches to brand partnerships and strategic syncs as well as outline major deal terms, negotiation tactics, and potential red flags.
