The Furniture Makers' Company and Anti Copying In Design join together to offer this informative webinar to furniture and furnishings designers and makers. UK designers are some of the best in the world and the IP that underpins original designs needs to be protected. Unfortunately, there are those that want to take the fast track to market by free riding on your ideas and creativity to copy or “adapt” them. A©ID and The Furniture Makers' Company are here to support you and other like-minded creatives as a community to demonstrate our commitment to protecting creative designs and products. On 17th November ACID’s co-founder and CEO Dids Macdonald, OBE., will share some of her practical insights into building a pro-active intellectual property strategy to enhance growth and protect designs. Dids, whose designs were copied shamelessly by some major high street retailers, believes that taking a few steps to better understand the laws that protect designers can make all the difference.
