Phoenix imekata umeme:-
[I]In a statement announcing the shutdown, Phoenix developer Cosmix implied that the current legal climate had left it with no choice.

[I]The decision is linked to a high-profile copyright infringement lawsuit in the US, whereby American satellite and broadcast provider Dish Network is suing third-party add-on ZemTV and the TVAddons library.
The developers behind each of the add-ons face a fine of up to $150,000 (£116,000), according to TorrentFreak.
Now several other Kodi add-on developers are choosing to voluntarily shut down their services, rather than face similar fines in future.

Android boxes pia hazijasazwa:-
[I]The other major focus of (Federation Against Copyright Theft) FACT’s crackdown on illegal streaming is on sellers of “fully-loaded” Kodi boxes and other streaming devices preconfigured for piracy.
While Kodi itself is perfectly legal, many unscrupulous retailers sell Kodi devices pre-loaded with third party plug-ins and add-ons that offer instant access to pirated content.
FACT is working with rights holders and law enforcement agencies to target these individuals, and several have already been arrested and charged with breaching the Copyright, Designs and Patent Act.[/I]
