I suspect this is an important topic that deserves a dedicated group working on establishing standards and at least outlining protocols. Perhaps a project for Hive?
Some years ago I got involved in the early stages of the Vape industry (not marijuana) and one of the brighter spots was that we established standards well before any regulatory agency, such as ID requirements and no underage sales and also limiting e-juice production to only American or European sourced ingredients for safety standards. Political pressure from the tobacco industry eventually crushed most operators. The main point is that if a group of us start now to establish standards and protocols we will gain an advantage needed later.
As @taskmaster4450 pointed out in another post today, regulation is coming. By taking proactive steps in this early stage we can have a say in how the regulation is shaped. This is particularly true if our efforts motivate companies like ShutterStock.com (tm) to migrate their image databases to platforms such as Hive. This would also simplify ownership security measures such as @dynamichivers 'watermark and owner key' suggestion in the comments to this post.
It's a thought at any rate.
