ACID (Anti Copying in Design) is a membership trade organisation for designers and manufacturers. We are committed to raising awareness and encouraging respect for intellectual property for all the creative industries. ACID has over 20 years experience of supporting its Members intellectual property Rights. We help to educate individuals and companies on how to develop an intellectual property strategy to discourage others copying and also provide an accessible, practical framework for those who believe that their Intellectual Property (IP) rights have been infringed. The ACID brand has become a powerful voice within the design community, a voice the organisation intends to be heard across boardrooms where directors would be appalled if anyone accused them of theft of their colleague’s watch or wallet but still think it is acceptable to steal ideas and products.
