ACID is the UK’s leading design and intellectual property campaigning organisation. We are a forward thinking trade association for designers and manufacturers; a not-for-profit organisation funded by membership fees. Our aim is to provide cost effective tips, advice and guidelines to help our members protect their intellectual property to achieve growth through a proactive IP strategy. To retain the integrity of our membership, all potential members must be designers or have a design capability and the majority of their products must be designed either in-house or by commissioned designers. We also welcome manufacturers to join ACID who have entered into licence agreements with freelance designers in which the intellectual property rights are assigned to the manufacturer.
