ACID (Anti Copying In Design) is a membership trade organsiation and action group created to combat the growing threats of plagiarism in the design and creative industries.
Membership fees are based on the annual turnover of your business, and a free legal advice and a design registration service is offered to ACID members. ACID recently won a landmark copyright case on behalf of Nouveau Fabrics, a Yorkshire-based design and upholstery firm.
The Design Council demonstrates and promotes the role of design in the UK via campaigns, research and development and a range of support services.
The easy-to-use website contains a comprehensive section on intellectual property, as well as case studies and lots of useful information about all aspects of design and the design process, written from a variety of perspectives.
