“We welcome the valuable work that ACID does in communicating the role of design protection”.
UK-IPO Director of Innovation.

“Since its very beginning ACID has taken an active role in raising awareness of the damage caused to the design industry by fake copies. I congratulate Dids Macdonald and her team on the improvements they have stimulated in this area”.
Baroness Morgan, former Minister of Intellectual Property

“A culture that values and respects intellectual property is one where ideas flourish and their progenitors are fairly rewarded. We need bodies like ACID to create, maintain and police that culture.”
Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs

“The design sector is a really important part of the UK's creative economy - with nearly £16 billion invested in designs each year. ACID has shown real initiative in taking this bold step to develop the ACID Marketplace. This will now mean that people are going to better understand the value of designs, and it will also help our world class designers to market and sell their innovative creations.” Former Minister for Intellectual Property, Lord Younger

“Distinctive design is the source of competitive edge and crucial to business success. It is essential to protect that distinctiveness and ACID fights effectively and tirelessly to do just this. It is the leading organisation in design protection.”
John Noble, British Brands Group

“Once I had created the look of my product, Ewgeco, I was looking to protect it quickly and effectively. ACID was my solution, cost effective and simple with a strong reassurance – just what you need when starting out in business. I am very proud to be an ambassador for such a proactive organisation.”
Tanya Ewing, Inventor of the Year 2008, Ewgeco

“Being involved with an ACID Accredited Exhibition like Spring Fair gives us confidence and I know that any alleged copying issues will be dealt with on site at the exhibition. It is daunting to go to an international fair with new designs because with new technology, new products are so easy to copy. It is in the exhibition organiser’s interest to protect the IP of design led exhibitors to keep them designing and creating, because it brings the buyers in. After all, buyers are attracted by new products.”
Dan Black, Black+Blum

“I started using the Design Databank for my new collection and it’s been good to drop into conversations with those that may think about stealing my designs that they have been sent to ACID. I’ll be starting work on my 2012 collection soon and will be getting them in early for those this year.”
Kelly Scully, Tantrums and Tiaras

“As soon as ACID pointed this out at the IP Audit, we were able to purchase a generic, reusable IP Assignment Agreement and, together with some further advice from ACID Accredited Law Firm McDaniel & Co, this is now part of our standard re-usable menu of agreements.”
Emma Holmes, Bentley UK Sales & Marketing Manager

“I like the professional support that ACID offers me and my company EGAR. It is a continuous and comfortable feeling knowing such a brilliant organisation is on hand to help me with any copyright issues every step of the way!”
Sue Scott-Horne

“Joining ACID and putting the logo on my website has stopped it"
