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.

The barcodes can be applied to digital files or paper-based media.
