Yeah…in all those cases you’d be culpable…because it’s in the same business.

What is this, the 1800's? “Yeah, it’s also software thus it’s similar”. Kik is an instant messaging service (or even: a company that provides (a means of) communication). I’m not convinced an NPM package that (AFAIK) has something to do with kickstarter has enough “similarities” besides the three-letter acronym/abbreviation/whatever with KIK to ‘infringe’ their precious trademark. That’s why I’d like to hear from an actual lawyer or someone knowledgeable on trademarks instead of random strangers from the internet.
