Macdonald wins Enterprise Nation award 

Dids Macdonald, Anti-Copying In Design ceo and founder has won the legal category in the Enterprise Nation Awards 2022. 

For the past quarter of a century Macdonald has worked tirelessly to raise awareness for issues within the landscape of intellectual property and the design industry. Her unique view of how IP works, and does not work, originates from her experience of being a designer. She understands and can personally empathise with designers and creatives. She knows how it feels to be copied first-hand and thus appreciates the tribulations facing designers to stand up for their IP rights. 

ACID has created a strong and supportive design community and constantly and continuously campaigns for design law reform. Through ACID’s benefit schemes, with the help of its legal affiliates, members have been supported to succeed against IP infringements, including successful mediations. The ACID IP Databank ensures designers have third party dated evidence. 

‘I’m delighted to be honoured by such a prestigious organisation. Enterprise Nation is such a great resource for SMEs. By ensuring that IP creators continually have the best possible practical tips and advice ensures IP as a positive force for growth. Paramount is the need for strong protection in, sadly, a world of copycats, so IP knowledge is strength,’ she says.
