All content of this site, unless dealt with below, is copyrighted and owned by UnLtd (regd UK charity 1090393; company no. 4180639).
All ideas on this site are in the public domain.
Replication of idea texts in their exact form on this site in publications for commercial use should not occur without prior permission of idea authors. The UnLtd Ideas Bank may occasionally use submitted ideas from others in its own publications to aid their dissemination and promotion.
If you wish to retain intellectual property (or patent) rights to your idea, you will probably not wish to submit it to this website (although our system does keep records of who submitted an idea and when it was submitted, which could provide evidence of 'a priori' thinking). Generally, though, the UIB is for openness, sharing and accessibility, rather than proprietariness. Moreover, ideas, as such, cannot be copyrighted: inventions and products can, but these should not be submitted to the site.
