The War on General-Purpose Computing Turns on the Streaming Media Box Community

The difficulty facing the titans of TV is that since neither those who sell Kodi boxes, nor those who write or host add-ons for the software, are engaging in any unauthorized copying by doing so, cases targeting these parties have to rely on other legal theories. So far several legal theories have been used; one in Europe against sellers of Kodi boxes, one in Canada against the owner of the popular Kodi add-on repository TvAddons.co, and two in the United States against TVAddons and a plugin developer. – Jeremy Malcolm & Mitch Stoltz, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) http://ift.tt/2ydLvCd
