Nor here, the judge has the ultimate say and is not bound by any 'deal'. But commonly a prosecutor will say on a minor charge "we'll lower the case to common assault and support an outcome of X" - the judge usually won't go to far off that, but might.

On more serious matters the judge is more likely to take a robust view and make his/her own decision.

It's a delicate subject, and full of lawyer speak. For example, I would never speak to a judge of a "deal", it is usually couched that defence and prosecution have had "robust discussions" and "reached a resolution" "which takes into account flaws in some aspects of the prosecution case, and the admissions made to police by the defendant ".

There's more than one way to skin a cat.

That is the same where I live the judge does not have to go with a reduced sentence if the prosecution (the crown) offers one in a deal. That being said they always do because if they don’t nobody will ever make a deal with a prosecutor (the crown) again.

Mentions that Kodi only has a strong piracy presence in the UK. It DOES NOT mention that Kodi is legit software. Clickbaity it is, I had more faith in you, Reg.

One of the weirdest things about this whole pirate addon situation is that I think it's significantly aged our userbase. In the past, the majority of our users appeared to be of the nerd variety, probably somewhere close to college age. This was somewhat necessary, because they had the time and interest to invest in setting up Kodi the right way. Those guys still exist, I hope, but now people selling boxes for profit are marketing towards the uneducated and technologically gullible, which at the risk of painting in overly broad strokes, tends to be a somewhat older crowd.

It fits what we've seen at conventions to some degree. The techies at the convention only sometimes know about Kodi, but the taxi drivers all love us.

I am holding back laughter because I am work. LOL!

There are plenty of nerds now that use and like Kodi. I can name...two. Oh wait, hmmm.

I think the real problem is where content comes from. When I joined the XBMC world back in version 9.11, content came from a cable subscription, a DVD, or a Youtube link. And now? Content is from EVERYWHERE! People have realized the extreme advantages of streaming over traditional methods, I think largely to do with Netflix's success. Now they want more, but Netflix doesn't have everything, neither does any other service. Consumers want the shows, not the channel, so if somebody offers those shows with less resistance (i.e. Cost), then people will gravitate there.

It's the same problem the PC gaming industry had. Consumers did not want DVD's or ludicrous DRM schemes. They wanted the games, so they pirated. It was a better deal than paying legitimately. Then Steam comes a long and gives them a better offer than they can get with piracy, so people migrated over to Steam. I don't know any PC gamer who does not get their games from Steam, anymore. Piracy is just too much of a hassle when one gets so much more for paying $5-15 per purchase.

The movie and TV industry needs to adapt too. They need to make a better offer than what consumers are getting with piracy.

Great find.

What an awfully misleading, click-bait headline.

Kodi set for Premier League game crackdown

Is your Kodi box illegal?

Philip Dewe and Tom Davidson reporting for The Daily Post (Trinity Mirror Group) on March 11th, 2017 at

<http://www.dailypost.co.UK/news/north-wales-news/kodi-set-premier-league-game-12727160>

state that

Quote:Kodi software itself is set to be banned by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO)

(The article is a cut'n'paste of the Daily Mirror article posted above. Newspapers in the UKofGB&N manufacture a decreasingly small number of original reports -- they just regurgitate and recycle articles from other newspapers.)

Does that mean that once it is banned, only criminals will be using Kodi?

No, it means you've not read it properly.
The headline is complete bollocks.

So how should I be properly reading the statement presented as fact by such a "respectable" newspaper as the Daily Post?

"Kodi software itself is set to be banned by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO)"

Quote:The headline is complete bollocks.
The above statement is NOT the headline but from the body of the article "written" by Philip Dewe and Tom Davidson.

Would these two journalists [knowingly] write a false statement?

I don't know them. Maybe.
I can think of several alternative explanations off the top of my head.
