Protecting your Designs

Although copyright is an automatic right, how to protect this right is left up to the individual. In effect, your protection is only as strong as the amount you are prepared to pay to protect it.

The GCA works closely with Briffa, a modern legal practice specialising in intellectual property (IP): the protection of copyright, designs, patents, trademarks, trade secrets and information technology.

Briffa has an affordable insurance scheme, Designprotect which is designed to protect your company from copyright and brand theft.

Starting at £190 per year for small companies Designprotect insurance offers copyright registration (ie proof of ownership) and provides a minimum fighting fund of £25,000 in the event of your work being copied.
