“A real threat to our industry” – On-pack promotions could breach Patent and cost a packet

by on December 10, 2014

Brand owners and agencies planning on-pack offers in 2015 need to be aware that their campaigns may be in breach of a European patent which could cost them thousands.

The patent, originally issued to the now extinct online reward scheme, covers the use of codes printed on promotional packs and till receipts or vouchers that is then linked to the ward of a prize or reward.

If the consumer  enters the codes onto a website or via text or post, and once validated, they then have the chance to win a prize or reward this is likely to be a breach of the patent regardless of whether it is an instant win, prize draw or competition mechanic.

Global innovation firm challenge status quo with new book and expanded London presence

Idea Couture helps businesses drive revenue growth and loyalty through strategic innovation

London, 29 November 2013: Idea Couture, a global specialist strategic innovation consultancy is marking the expansion of its London presence with the publication of a book “Design Thinking for Strategic Innovation” by Idris Mootee, the company’s global CEO. This builds on work Mootee has done with both MIT and Harvard, including running the programme on Design Thinking for the Harvard Graduate School.

The book starts from the recognised premise that for companies today to succeed beyond anything but the short term, ‘business as usual’ will simply not suffice. Disruption in the marketplace is not only faster, but more fundamental and will not be kind to businesses used to operating by the old rules – even the ones that once made them successful.  For more information visit or call us on 020 7729 0487.
