Becoming a Corporate Member of ACID

The UK’s leading Membership & Campaigning Organisation for Design & Intellectual Property.

Why is Intellectual Property so important to you?

Intellectual capital is the DNA running through most successful businesses whether micro or macro. It’s the intangible value of a business, covering its people, its relationships and its structural capital of which Intellectual Property (IP) plays a significant role. British Design and manufacture is a UK success story, it is all round us, from iconic to everyday, solving problems, adding value. Design matters.  Since its inception over two decades ago, Anti Copying in Design (ACID) has become the leading UK Design and intellectual property voice for designers and manufacturers.

We speak to Government, key influencers and policy makers to ensure that the best possible IP enforcement is in place to allow IP creators’ ideas to be monetised to achieve growth. ACID, a membership organisation, is part of a national conversation on IP protection and has a formidable track record of successful settlements on behalf of its members. The high profile and powerful ACID brand of deterrence, used by thousands, carries a strong anti-copying message to all who see it.
