Kodi fights trademark trolls trying to charge for its media app

The media center app developer has revealed that it’s battling “trademark trolls” who’ve registered the Kodi name as their own and are using that mark to profit from software that’s supposed to be free to distribute. The culprits may charge you to host Kodi on a website, for example, or make you buy their Kodi boxes instead of others. And this isn’t a theoretical worry, either. – Jon FIngas, Engadget http://ift.tt/2wVHsc1
