Call to Arms: Combatting Trademark Infringement
I was thinking, it shouldn't be too difficult to stop the worst of offenders, when they are using the word "Kodi" in their business name, it is direct trademark infringement to the highest degree and without even needing to question content, shouldn't be too difficult to get taken down. Enough with this madness, let's all do our part and get complaining!

Domain Name: In terms of trademark infringing domain names, the arbitration process seems to be quite simple actually. It is important to note that the domains below aren't simply squatting on domain names, they are actively associating Kodi with piracy through their domain name, and thus causing major damage to the Kodi brand. It would be quite simple for the XBMC Foundation to commence the ICANN dispute resolution process, both the ADR and WIPO provide arbitration forums at a simple cost, it actually wouldn't cost that much when it comes down to the number of offending domain names. Once a decision is reached, the offending domain name would be transferred directly to the XBMC Foundation.

Facebook doesn't want their network used for piracy, so if enough of us complain, these scamming Facebook profiles will be taken down for good.

See Facebook Abuse Reporting:

Twitter generally follows American law, so they definitely don't want pirates killing a legitimate organization's trademark. Hopefully they'll listen if enough of us complain!

See Twitter Trademark Infringement Reporting:
