Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here

How very wrong formulated this article is.

"Rather than give up their work, or submit to what they saw as XBMC's onerous guidelines, a group of XBMC developers instead formed XBMC Hub, a place where people were free to tinker on whatever addons they liked without worry of restrictions or reprisal."

"Like any open-source ecosystem, Kodi contains multitudes. There's the Kodi media player itself. There's TV Addons and other developer communities. There are the plugins that scrape the internet for pirated material. "

"Those are what transformed Kodi into the modern-day pirate's favorite ship."

"Meanwhile, in Canada, copyright holders have chosen to target TV Addons, the XBMC developer spinoff community"

No "XBMC developers" formed XBMC Hub. Some piracy addon developers XBMC Hub. Those piracy addon developers have not contributed nothing to XBMC's core code so can not be called "XBMC developers". And IIRC most if not all addons on XBMC Hub was piracy related. It goes on to say that TV Addons and others is part of Kodi's open-source ecosystem. All and all the article make it sound as if the people behind XBMC/Kodi and "XBMC Hub" have an official connection, like an official spinoff. That makes it a poorly written article IMHO.
