Explains what is actually legal, illegal and doesn't scaremonger


Installing Kodi on a Chromecast, good luck with that.

"The websites of several Israeli Kodi repositories and add-ons have been shut down this week, following legal action from a local anti-piracy group. The operators of the platforms reportedly agreed to pay a settlement of thousands of shekels and face a hefty fine if they relaunch their services."

No Engadget, why do you too now suck as seperating legal addon communities from illegal/piracy addons communities?! I normally like Engadget for their serious journalism in the technology area, but this re-report of that TF article have had very few fact checking done, if any.


They have now choosen to use the misleading clickbait title: "A piracy lawsuit is tearing Kodi's add-on community apart".

And in the article the make it sound as if piracy addons developers have same FOSS philosofies as Kodi's core developers:

"Many Kodi developers consider themselves hobbyists and administer add-ons in their free time for no financial reward."

In addition the writter of this article seem to think that Kodi is a company:

"Kodi -- the company behind the popular media center -- often finds itself entangled in legal action, even though it actively discourages the promotion of piracy add-ons on its platform. It provides the open source software but doesn't dictate which add-ons are allowed on the platform."

Well, fact is that Team-Kodi does dictate which add-ons are allowed in the official addon repo, just as Google dictate which apps are allowed in their Google Play app store for Android, but both platforms allow side-loading, still no one is hanging out Google of sideloaded illegal/piracy apps capabinity in Android.
Who's to blame for the Kodi crackdown?
