Kodi/XBMC in the media? Post links here

I'd be interested in the Kodi teams official response to this

like with any addon not part of our official addon repository, this applies:
https://kodi.tv/article/freedom-of-choice

some additional thoughts on this addon specifically can be read here:
https://github.com/xbmc/repo-scripts/pull/1270


my personal, non official, response would be:
unless you want your MAC address, linked to a list of your (potential illegal) addons to end up on some remote server, don't install it.
(see: https://github.com/yunmingxiao/script.sa...py#L33-L34)

i'm sure the addon was developed in good faith, but data collection like that isn't acceptable in my book. (and it's very likely a violation of the GDPR as well)
Do not PM or e-mail Team-Kodi members directly asking for support.
Always read the Forum rules, Kodi online-manual, FAQ, Help and Search the forum before posting.
