Is having an NPM package with the name ‘kik’ actually in “violation” of that trademark? What about NuGet packages? Maven? CPAN? PECL? Or what if I register a Twitter/Facebook/G+ account with the username ‘kik’ because I happen to have that nickname or think it sounds cool?
Did you actually consult your lawyers?

Yeah…in all those cases you’d be culpable…because it’s in the same business. It’s software. If you made Kik cereal they wouldn’t have a leg, but this is software.
