CopCorp Licensing will use Brand Licensing Central & Eastern Europe this week as a platform to launch new brand, Fiona & the Funky Pirates.

The property is a spin-off from Barcode Kitties, which was created by Japan's Seikodo. It launches with some strong artwork (including character designs, background and secondary graphic elements), with a bright colour palette featuring blue and rich gold, plus jewel tones.

"With strong Barcode Kitties licensees already established in Germany, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia and elsewhere across Europe, this trade fair seemed the ideal time and place to launch our Barcode Kitties spin-off property," said Carole Postal, president of CopCorp Licensing.

"Barcode Kitties licensees are now welcome to incorporate Fiona, Captain Fish, Skipper, Dipper and the others into their existing product lines, or to treat Fiona & the Funky Pirates as a completely independent property."
