Sat May 12th 13:45-14:30 | Room 11

With regards to music usage in film, advertising and games, we keep coming across the same deficiencies in terms of communication, knowledge, information, efficiency, and creativity.

This open panel will identify these deficiencies and discuss possibilities how they can be constructively addressed. 


  • How important is knowledge about music rights, how do we educate?
  • How do we open the way for the independent players towards an optimized and pro-active minded synch-business? 
  • How do we strengthen the link between rights-owners and the clients across borders?
  • Do we face the same challenges throughout Europe?
  • How important Is it to understand our cultural differences?
  • How do we benefit from a stronger European music community?
  • The need of a common European platform to generate and curate processes of networking, connections, education, communication, creative and legal consulting, brokering and exploitation. 
  • rn

The panel presents a wide range of individual professional tie-ins into the synch-business.
