If someone photographed an old window do they now have a copyright on it?

I have commissioned a package designer to design the box

I have commissioned a package designer to design the box for my product. When he completed the design he transferred all IP rights and copyright of the design of the box over to me. I have a copy of this agreement. This was back in August of 2015. Last month I discovered a similar knife set being sold on Amazon with the EXACT same design as my box.

What is my recourse?
