Looks like some of these boxes are finally annoying enough to go after, alas XBMC/Kodi mentioned too many times.

Kodi is only mentioned by Torrent Freak. In the 'real' news outlets Kodi wasn't mentioned once. (It was also only in local news, as far as I can tell, I tried finding news of it on national newspapers, but only found it on the local paper).

EDIT: The original news story from the local paper: http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/police-trading-standards-joint-raid-9413857

Here's a better take with this announcement

Kodi Media Center For Android Is Now Available On The Play Store, No Beta Request Necessary http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/06/14/kodi-media-center-for-android-is-now-available-on-the-play-store-no-beta-request-necessary/

still put too kindly Sad

It's a big coincidence we got kicked from Amazon App store last week and today we officially published for Google Play Store (this one was planned).
Sure hope they will kick theirselves


RE: Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here - Cassiel - 2015-06-16

A possible reaction could be: Make a blog post on kodi.tv and engage users to not buy Amazon hardware.


RE: Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here - stammie - 2015-06-16

The decision looks even stranger when a certain Kodi spinoff that does contain copyright infringing addons is still in the Amazon Appstore!

Great press responses by Android Police, The Stack, Slashdot, The Register, plus more here, I think that bad press like that will hopefully make Amazon think twice

http://thestack.com/amazon-kodi-app-store-ban-piracy-160615

Few of additional dramatic re-post articles and discussion comments here on The Register and Slashdot about Amazon's bad decision which is poor press for them too:

Mostly what I get from these articles is that I'll probably not be working for Amazon in the near future. Ah well. Smile


RE: Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here - Martijn - 2015-06-16

Yes I feel their pain...


RE: Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here - Koying - 2015-06-16

Don't feel sorry Nate. I crossed one of their employee on Twitter and he was an ass...
Probably part of the company culture Wink
