Event date

Event description

Join the BIID and Anti-Copying in Design (ACID) to learn how to implement an Intellectual Property (IP) strategy into your interior design business to protect your designs and your profits.


In this 45-minute webinar, interior designers will be guided through the fundamentals of IP before launching into how to implement an IP strategy to protect your designs and bolster your confidence when communicating your policy to developers, manufacturers, collaborators, and clients.

The webinar will be presented to you by CEO of Anti Copying in Design (ACID), Dids Macdonald, OBE and intellectual property specialist Gavin Llewellyn, Partner in the Corporate & Commercial team of Stone King LLP in London.

Through resources, templates, and case studies, let Gavin and Dids guide you to make the right decisions when it comes to instilling IP in your T’s & C’s.


This webinar is for interior designers at all stages of their career looking to understand their rights as designers and how to implement an Intellectual Property Strategy into their business.


Gavin Llewellyn is a Partner in the Corporate & Commercial team of Stone King LLP in London.  He is an intellectual property specialist dealing with a broad range of IP rights for a wide variety of clients.  Gavin has a particular focus on brand and design protection and exploitation and on contentious issues and business risks related to IP, including the enforcement of IP rights through Court and IP Registry proceedings.  As a result of this focus, Gavin works closely with brand owners and businesses from across the design industry and is a Legal Affiliate of the design trade association Anti Copying in Design (ACID).    

Dids Macdonald has over 25 years’ experience within the design industry initially owning an interior design company and latterly as a designer-maker. She launched ACID (Anti Copying in Design) because her products were consistently copied. In June 2015 Dids was made an Honorary Fellow of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) and an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in Her Majesty’s Birthday Honours for her services to the design industry.

ACID is the UK’s leading membership and campaigning organisation for Design and Intellectual Property and is a trade association for designers and manufacturers with aim to provide advice and guidelines to help their members protect their intellectual property to achieve growth through a proactive IP strategy.
