Please keep in mind, that "Kodi" is a registered trademark here in Germany, in use of a grocery store. This could cause trouble.
please search the forum regarding that comment
I will check tomorrow what KODI, Germany has to say about this. Keep you updated.
They have nothing to say about it.

What are you going to do? Run to them some one has the same name?
Safe yourself the trouble and go drink beer

Even if they have an objection, that alone doesn't mean there is a legal/trademark issue. If it were up to most companies then no one would ever be allowed to use any name even remotely close to theirs, even if it was perfectly legal according to trademark law. Heck, I bet you if you asked "KODi" they would also tell you they would like to be the only ones allowed to call themselves a store, as that would be good for business.
