ACID Legal Affiliates
One of the main benefits of ACID membership has been access, through a specialist legal hotline, to initial free advice on contentious and non contentious intellectual property issues. ACID members can take this free advice and use their own solicitor or take advantage of specially negotiated hourly rates, in the order of a reduction on the fees which non-members would pay.
ACID is now delighted to launch a new Legal Affiliate scheme and ACID Members will benefit from the ability to personally search for an ACID Legal Affiliate by location or specialism through the ACID Affiliates area of the website. This new system offers greater choice and the option to choose a local specialist team, should members wish to arrange personal meetings as well as receiving support via telephone and e-mail.
The ACID Legal Affiliate scheme offers broader, specialist support for creative designers and manufacturers to help them in their commercial relationships. By creating a safer commercial trading framework through ACID Marketplace this will enable originators to fully exploit, maximise and commercialise their tradable intellectual property. Design buyers will register once through IP Tracker and sign the ACID Buyer's Charter.
