Creative Barcode is a nonprofit organization that allows members to share new ideas without the risk of unauthorized copying. It was founded in 2010.[1] Members embed digital codes in creative works to indicate usage permissions. Private disclosure is made to other members who agree not to publicly disclose the idea or use the idea without permission of the original creator. Members agree to dispute resolution through the World Intellectual Property Organization.[2]

In June 2011, Creative Barcode licensed its idea registration process to AHHHA USA, a social ideation[clarification needed] platform, and Brunel University.[3][4]

Inventor advocate Simon Brown, founder of the UK based United Innovation Association, has recommended that Creative Barcode be considered for protecting new ideas posted on Crowd funding sites.[5]

Criticism[edit]

Creative Barcode has been criticized for charging fees to the creative works producers. An alternative registration and marketing program of creative works has been proposed by Stop43 that would have no fees for image producers.[6]
