Intellectual Property Protection

Safeguarding Creative Works

About This Case

Case study for our client whose intellectual properties had been stolen by a competitor


Mr. Kelvin Kinge

Situation: Mr. Kelvin Kinge, a talented graphic designer, had spent years creating and developing a unique brand identity for his business. His creative works, including logos, designs, and marketing materials, were the foundation of his success. However, he became aware that a competitor had copied and used his designs without permission, leading to brand confusion and potential financial losses. Concerned about protecting his intellectual property and business interests, Mr. Kinge sought legal counsel.


The challenge was to protect Mr. Kinge’s intellectual property rights, prevent further unauthorized use of his creative works, and seek remedies for the damages caused by the competitor’s actions.

Our Approach

Understanding the importance of intellectual property protection and the need for a strategic response, P. K Kamau & Co. Advocates took a comprehensive approach:

1. Intellectual Property Audit:

We conducted a thorough audit of Mr. Kinge’s intellectual property portfolio, including trademarks, copyrights, and designs. This helped identify the specific works that had been infringed upon.


2. Cease and Desist Letter:

We immediately sent a cease and desist letter to the competitor, notifying them of the infringement and demanding an immediate halt to the unauthorized use of Mr. Kinge’s creative works.

3. Evidence Collection:

We gathered evidence to support the claim of copyright infringement, including screenshots, timestamps, and other documentation proving the competitor’s unauthorized use.


4. Legal Remedies:

We explored legal remedies available under intellectual property laws, including injunctive relief to stop the infringement, and sought damages for the financial harm caused to Mr. Kinge’s business.


5. Negotiation and Settlement:

While prepared for litigation, we also engaged in negotiations with the competitor to reach a settlement that would protect Mr. Kinge’s intellectual property rights and compensate him for the damages suffered.



The successful resolution of this intellectual property protection case demonstrated the importance of safeguarding creative works:


1. Immediate Cessation of Infringement:

Following the cease and desist letter, the competitor promptly ceased the unauthorized use of Mr. Kinge’s creative works, mitigating further damage to his brand.


2. Compensation for Damages:

Through negotiations, we secured compensation for Mr. Kinge, covering both the financial losses incurred due to the infringement and the legal expenses associated with protecting his intellectual property.


3. Continued Protection:

With the infringing party aware of the legal consequences, Mr. Kinge continued to protect his intellectual property and monitor for any potential future infringements.


The successful protection of Mr. Kelvin Kinge’s creative works underscored the importance of intellectual property rights and the role of legal advocacy in preserving those rights. P. K Kamau & Co.
