Note that the summary here leaves out a lot of the complexity of the case. LibLime apparently owns the copyright to the Koha code, maintains the koha.org web site, and is run by a former Koha developer. When this was reported before, it was in the context of a free-to-commercial fork of an open source project.
I know nothing about New Zealand's trademark law, but this certainly muddles the issue. Can the "project" maintain a trademark on a product owned and sold by another party?
