Such a shame to see such a great project effectively have it's brand completely destroyed.

So many of my work colleagues and friends bang on about their "jailbroken/hacked/cracked/chipped" Box/Fire Stick with "free TV" and knowing nothing about what Kodi actually is.

Revert back to the name of XBMC and remove video addons.

Who's behind the Kodi crackdown?

No surprise really with FACT and in turn, Sky and Virgin behind the funding of these operations.

All they want is the case law confirmed. Still waiting for the court case though.

Not sure how a name change would stop it, and the video addons are created by 3rd parties, not Kodi Foundation.
Stripping the ability for users to add non-pirating addons would kill Kodi, since adding different skins, etc are part of it's appeal.

Even made the back page of the Daily Mail in the UK (same 5 arrests story, but from a sports streaming viewpoint).

"There are an estimated 25 million active Kodi users around the world, said Nathan Betzen, who is the president of XBMC Foundation, the nonprofit technology consortium that develops Kodi software. Betzen, who prefers to take a neutral stance on how people use the product, says that, based on the demographic makeup of visitors to Kodi’s online forums, roughly 38% of users are likely in the U.S."

Wow, 25 million users and counting and what's the response from the major content providers like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu.... silence. The best way for these content providers to fight piracy on KODI... (1) Stop selling fully loaded boxes (Looking at you Amazon) and (2) develop for the KODI platform. It's obvious that there are a lot of KODI users out there (25 million!), why don't these companies see these users as potential customers? Seems rather obvious to me, content providers want to maxamize control over the systems that their users are running.

I remember when Amazon changed their system and the community developed addon stopped working, I immediately called and canceled my Amazon subscription. Is there any chance that one day these companies might listen and take my money already?!
