ACID - Your Voice Against Design Theft

educate... prevent... deter... support... lobby

ACID (Anti Copying in Design) is a membership organisation, committed to raising awareness and encouraging respect for intellectual property within individual and corporate social responsibility.. See latest action.

The powerful ACID logo is an internationally recognised symbol of deterrence and design protection - helping to protect our members from the potentially devastating financial damage inflicted by intellectual property infringement. 1000’s are licensed through membership to use the ACID logo to communicate their strict anti copying policy e.g. Bruce Munro, Osborne & Little and Alstons Cabinets

ACID has a broad, influential membership base …… textile designers & manufacturers, jewellers, furniture manufacturers, giftware designers, architects, fashion designers, interior accessory producers, graphic designers... over 1,000+ member companies... with one shared voice.

To date there have been over 300 settlements with over £3 million recovered in costs and damages and ACID has managed 2000+ mediations at grass roots. Less than 30% required further legal intervention.

ACID membership offers multiple benefits - from design protection to maximising commercial and trading relationships - through education and exploitation of intellectual property rights.

ACID's lobby is heard in all legislative quarters, fighting to improve designers’ rights.

Knowledge of IP rights is a key strength providing a sound preventative and deterrent strategy against design theft.

ACID has a formidable track record of successful settlements against IP theft. In April 2008 ACID celebrated its 10th anniversary.
