Kraftwerk filed a lawsuit against an electronics company

The German electronics company eZelleron, Inc. is having a hard time as the legendary Ralf Hütter power plant has filed a copyright theft lawsuit after the company used the group’s name to name its new charger “Kraftwerk.”

The charger takes advantage of new fuel cell technology and was recently funded through Kickstarter, where over $1,500,000 was raised. The lawsuit, filed in a Delaware court, states:

“Consumers are likely to assume that there is a connection, association or connotation between the famous electronic music band and a portable music player charger.”

Hütter owns the rights to the name “Kraftwerk,” which means “power plant” in German.
