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.
