ACID was originally started to help David fight Goliath. By speaking with one united voice under the Anti Copying in Design brand of deterrence, our message resonates. For over 20 years, ACID has been YOUR voice against design theft – campaigning, supporting, helping to deter but most of all championing the amazing talent in UK design. Naming and shaming to shout about our track record of literally thousands of settlements has put the D in deterrence. Thousands of people proudly use the ACID logo, the brand of deterrence on their websites, product labelling, indeed anywhere that communicates a strong anti-copying message. Watch the new two minute video here.
But there is a lot more to being part of the ACID community. Yes, we shout about the unfairness of copying, but we’re also passionate about all YOUR successes. We want to champion, celebrate and support your growth!
