"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."

Really?

Quote:Right now, the 64-bit Kodi is available for Windows only, but the XBMC/Kodi Foundation is working really hard to port the necessary libraries to other platforms, including Android.

How wrong can they be

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.

https://www.engadget.com/2017/06/07/kodi...k-lawsuit/

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.
