Podcast: Adams & Adams discuss the mandatory recordation process of IP rights in Kenya
In the second episode of a three-part podcast series by Adams & Adams on doing business within the dynamic IP world of Africa, the firm’s anti-counterfeiting head, Godfrey Budeli, talks to Managing IP about new rules for IP rights owners operating in Kenya that are designed to combat counterfeit goods. As the country seeks to promote and facilitate legitimate trade, Kenya’s Anti-Counterfeiting Authority (ACA) have amended the Anti-Counterfeit Act to include a mandatory recordation process of IP rights. Among other changes, the new legislation states that a record of IP rights that pertain to products being imported into Kenya must be provided to the ACA, irrespective of the place of registration. The new legislation will take effect on January 1 2023. In a chat with Managing IP’s Rani Mehta, Budeli discusses the legal basis and purpose for the recordal, the wider impact of the amendments to the Anti-Counterfeit Act and provides practical examples of how global businesses can react to the changes in Kenya.

Remarkably, 60% of this population is under the age of 25, presenting the opportunity for a new generation of increasingly-educated business leaders to shape financial development and economics. As opportunities and resources become widely available across the region, trademark applicants wishing to protect their intellectual property will have more questions. The experts discuss the challenges of relying on well-known marks in the continent, explore the pan-African legal developments that companies should be aware of, and consider the common mistakes that trademark owners may encounter.
