Is there a way I can delete / withdraw these posts and close this account? I've just been on edge lately and the end result isn't anything I'm proud of. I'd just like pretend this whole day never happened. I'm sorry.

P.S. Sorry for all the edits, not easy typing when the text is the same color as the field I'm typing it in. Undecided

I'd just like to point out that in Finland it's legal to make personal copies of books, movies and music, but not software (which includes games).

From what I understand, the very concept of fair use is actually much more limited in most non-US countries.

Can you lead a revolution against not using the word 'Cartoon' five times in one paragraph? Use a thesaurus maybe?


Re: XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - nickr - 2015-03-15

Or sentences?

....... is not part of English.


RE: XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - Ned Scott - 2015-03-15

Calm down, guys. He did say that english isn't his first language.

isnt it against policy for people to openly be selling kodi builds? and if so there is alot going on on facebook,people being charged for so called custom builds of Kodi!
wasnt sure where to post,but just wanted to give guys at Kodi a heads up about this,thanks.


RE: XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - DarrenHill - 2015-06-26

Concerning posts relating to banned add-ons, would it be possible to semi-automate the "watch" for them?

My thinking being that if a post is made containing certain keywords or known banned addons or repo names (e.g. Genesis, Navi-X, Super Repo etc) that on pushing OK it pops up a warning that the post contains references to banned subjects (along with maybe a link to the wiki page on the subject), with options to either proceed with the post or to go back and re-edit it (or to cancel it maybe). If OK is pressed then maybe have a notification sent to moderators to check the post.

I know it wouldn't stop people determined to post (who may post "Navi X" or "N a v i - X" for somesuch), but it could help with people who've bought boxes of crapware off eBay or Amazon and then come crawling here when they break.

It could perhaps assist with some of the volume of bannable threads/posts that get made here, although I'm thinking of it in addition to how the forum currently operates rather than as a replacement for the fine policing work that our esteemed hammer-wielders go.

Selling Kodi isn't illegal. However, customizing it and calling it "Kodi" (especially if they're loading it with pirate streaming add-ons) is a violation of our Kodi trademark. People either have to rename it or they can only sell Kodi un-modified.

What is the Kodi community stance on an addon that links to software/media hosted on the Internet Archive?

Reason I ask is I'm developing an addon which links to archives such as The Internet Arcade or TOSEC. I'd like to share it / post it in the Kodi forums but want to understand where this falls officially.

Thanks!


XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - natethomas - 2015-06-29

As far as we know, Internet archive is entirely public domain content, so making those addons should be fine.


RE: XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - Ned Scott - 2015-06-29

Linking to the Internet Archive is similar to having a YouTube add-on. It is possible to have infringing material on either site, but piracy is not the explicit purpose of either site.


RE: XBMC's Piracy Stance: Draft - zachmorris - 2015-06-29

Thanks to both of you, makes sense :-)
