Kodi's official DRM stance
#15
I would like to thank Team Kodi for the stance they have taken.

I believe that the freedom that Kodi tries to give its users has played a large part in how popular Kodi has become. It's true that Kodi is used by many people nowadays, but you'd still be hard-pressed to find 2 people that use Kodi in exactly the same way. From the use of different skins and views to the different settings and addons, everyone seems to use Kodi in their own specific way. They have the freedom to do so. This freedom has also allowed for the possibility to easily access pirated content, which is now causing problems for Kodi when they wish to collaborate with legal content providers.

Rather than making changes to reduce the freedom given to Kodi users, Team Kodi is trying to make legal content easily accessible as well. This only increases the freedom given to Kodi users, as we are now given more ways to access content (like Netflix) without losing any of the existing ways to access content. Accessing legal content does sometimes require the use of DRM, but Team Kodi has (repeatedly) declared that this will not impede the existing ways of accessing content.

I realize that this is a difficult stance to take, which requires a lot of time and effort, but I (personally) also believe that this is the best direction in the long run. Thank you, Team Kodi.
