Blue Pencil at 100% Design

100Design DebateBlue Pencil was at the exciting design show 100% Design currently on at Earl’s Court.

We shared a stand with Creative Barcode on 18th September the opening day of the show. Member Law firms of Creative Barcode’s IP Innovation fund ran a free legal clinic for designers wanting to know more about how to protect their IP rights.

Creative Barcode members were available to explain how their system works to provide a clear and traceable record as to the IP ownership of original material.

We had the great pleasure of meeting the Prime Minster’s newly appointed Intellectual Property Advisor Mike Weatherley, Conservative MP for Hove and Portslade. Mike has a strong IP background including being Vice President (Europe) the Motion Picture Licensing Company and previously worked for music industry’s renowned Pete Waterman. Mike is taking a very keen interest in the activities of Creative Barcode.

Brighton Rocks to Creative Barcode

55 Brighton

One cannot copyright an idea only the manifestation of an idea, even though the core idea is probably where the real intrinsic value rests.

Whether it is an invention, TV format or piece of music one is very vulnerable when trying to win backers to invest, commission or promote an idea. Many organisations are very honourable, but even so the law books are peppered with cases where disputes have arisen about an organisation being accused of copying an idea but not giving credit to the instigator of the idea. Excuses include our idea is similar, but sufficiently different to suggest it is a different manifestation and therefore no breach of copyright. Another excuse is we were thinking along similar lines when you submitted your idea.
