About Creative Barcode



In just over two years, Creative Barcode has attracted hundreds of users from more than 29 countries and has gained the endorsement of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO).

The CB system has never been breached.

Creative Barcode comprises a digital App (not mobile), QR code-based identifiers, a database-driven portal, a file transfer facility and a Trust Charter and Transfer of Ownership facility.  

The App enables users to generate their unique QR codes embedded with their ownership Meta Data and contact details, where applicable, plus other formal registrations and licensing information.

Uniquely a QR code can be edited to simultaneously update every item it has formerly been applied to, whether online or in print.

Thus, if an item of work and its IP is sold outright it only takes 3 minutes to change ownership details and simultaneously apply worldwide.

Creative Barcode is a trusted brand.  Its digital and visible IP system has removed a great deal of the IP complexity from early stage concept disclosure.  

Online, internet users can easily recognise 'rights reserved' or 'free-use' terms associated with the creative work and can swiftly contact the creator to gain permission to use, to license, to purchase or to commission original works.

Creative Barcode trust charter operates to three key principles - Etiquette (ask permission), Trust (don't rip me off), Ethics (do the right thing).

The principles are easy to abide by and hence the Creative Barcode system has built a framework around trust and ethics all supported by the WIPO's mediation service.
