A designer led not for profit organization offers a new application to take the frustration out of protecting creative work.

For creative professionals, protecting all the visual materials associated with explaining a new idea is an important task most don't make time for. It can also be a daunting learning curve of researching and understanding legal terms and process that individuals really don't have time to spend doing. A new UK not for profit organization called Creative Barcode aims to make the process of establishing protection for creative assets easier. They have developed an application which generates digital barcodes that can be attached to written or visual concepts to denote ownership and outline usage permissions. A unique barcode can be generated for each piece of work and provides proof of ownership for materials used for creative pitches, proposal submissions, or competition work. The barcodes can be applied to digital files or paper-based media.
