#IntellectualPropertyTheftKE: The government registered & knows about Kibo Capital’s stolen Utility Model

The last two articles have articulated how Safaricom Plc has stolen with impunity,, a utility Model belonging to Kibo Capital Group Limited.

Here is a further breakdown of what the Utility Model is. This article also shows that Kibo Capital’s owner covered all grounds in the registration of his Intellectual Property.

We advise firms not to sign up to the MPESABillManager as Safaricom Plc will be served with court orders to cease and desist from running it.

What is so hard to sit down with Kibo Capital Group Limited, agree on a monthly fee and pay this fee for the remaining 8 years of the Utility Model’s life?

Why did Safaricom Plc embarrass itself by stealing a registered Patent?

The company registered its innovations with relevant state authorities at every process.

Basically, the government knows everything about the above Utility Model and as such shouldn’t have accepted it to be used by any other entity for 10 years. Or any entity that wanted to use it must pay the owners of Kibo Capital Group Limited.

10 years is the period of time a Utility Model is valid in registration to an entity.

However, Pesalink and Safaricom (#MPESABillManager) among some few others small firms went ahead to infringe on this Intellectual Property Right and must pay.

Kibo Capital also in 4th August 2020 registered the trade mark e-Receipt. The registering organisation is Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO)

e-Receipt, a registered trademark of Kibo Capital Group Limited. The copyright is due for renewal in August 2030.
