"While our client is amused by your sense of humour, he finds your actions unfair, unlawful, and a terrible attempt at benefitting off the back of a brand that he has expensively built over a long period of time. Our client is surprised as to why an international brand like yourselves, with globally and presumably well-financed, would brazenly use his brand without appropriate compensation to push a campaign where you will make massive returns," the demand letter read in part.

It is not yet clear if the accused party has honoured the demand letter and acted on it accordingly.
