Is Kodi Legal in The U.K. ? Questions over using and selling the Devices

1 post in this topic

Is Kodi Legal in The U.K. ? Questions over using and selling the Devices

 

A lot of people will have woken up on Christmas Day to a new Kodi box beneath their tree.

But you could find yourself in trouble if you use them under certain circumstances.

The Android boxes have proved a huge hit with people desperate to watch PPV films and live sport, including Premier League football, on the cheap.

But it turns out there is confusion surrounding the legality of devices, and it depends how they’re used.

And with a trader being hauled to court in a landmark case over their legality many are wondering if the boxes will be legal for much longer.

Are they legal now?

The problem with Kodi is this: although it utilises perfectly legal and easy-to-use software, it can also be easily used for illegal streaming. Subscription sports and movie packages, for example, are only a few clicks away – and all for free.

TV-kodi.jpg

 

Put simply, Kodi, and boxes with Kodi installed, are perfectly legal. The problem arises when the Kodi app is used to illegally stream subscription content.

The confusion around the legality of the boxes is so great that it could take a court case involving a man called Brian Thompson from Middlesbrough to help settle it.

He’s thought to be the first man brought to court to face allegations of selling pre-loaded Kodi or Android boxes. The boxes allow you to watch and stream offline and online content.

The boxes themselves are legal.

But the problem is with pre-loaded or altered boxes to watch PPV content, like Sky Sports or films currently in the cinema.

That, claims prosecutors, is illegal.

So when will we know?

How long is a piece of string?

Thompson entered not guilty pleas at court and a trial is expected to start before a judge on May 8.

But even if he loses the trial, Brian has already said he intends to fight any decision – even hinting he could take the fight to Europe.

That could result in a lengthy court process which could drag out a definitive ruling on the devices.

Are there any other similar legal cases?

One has just finished, and resulted in one man receiving a four year jail sentence for conspiracy to defraud.

 

In what was first to be the first sentencing of its kind, Terry O’Reilly was handed the tough term for flogging over 1,000 boxes to pubs, who used them to illegally stream Premier League footy.

Following the result, Premier League Director of Legal Services Kevin Plumb said: “The courts have provided a clear message: this is against the law and selling systems which allow people to watch unauthorised Premier League broadcasts is a form of mass piracy and is sufficiently serious to warrant a custodial sentence.

Another-Kodi-box-court-case.jpg

 “There can now be no doubt for consumers that these systems are illegal.”

So are they still on sale?

They are, and there are loads of them.

The case involving O’Reilly was for a conspiracy to defraud, a less serious charge than those Thompson is facing.

His charges, which his solicitor claim are used under an “unusual piece of legislation”, see him accused of selling boxes “adapted for the purpose of enabling or facilitating the circumvention of effective technological measures” and a third charge involving “advertising a product to circumvent technological measures”.

That case focuses specifically on selling pre-loaded boxes.

Until that, or another similar case, has gone through the courts it is likely they will still be sold on the high street.

Currently, a quick internet search shows retail giants like Tesco and Amazon are selling similar devices, although they aren’t pre-loaded.

What’s happening in the pubs?

In October, bosses at a pub in Middlesbrough called the Navigation were fined £8,000 after being caught streaming matches through a Kodi box.

And in a show of support for Thompson in his home town, there is a sign up in the front window of another pub warning that anybody who works for the FA, Sky, BT, the Premier League or its “servants” are pretty much barred.

It warns that anybody from those firms – who are leading the fight against pubs illegally streaming live footy – will face legal action if they set foot inside.

It states: “Any entrance by the above will be considered as trespass and as such any information gained would be by default.”

      The main problem with this is some of our members are not helping themselves. Yes, we understand if you got a problem you would like speedy results and answers but time after time we see the same questions like “Help pin wont work” or “Spartan wizard keeps asking me to log on” etc.
      In reply to questions like that we ask “what are you trying to install in on?” or “when do you get this error?” etc. Now you can obviously see that this is wasting time on your behalf and you are still stuck and having to reply with the relevant information, hence talking up more time to get you up and running when we want to get you running as soon as possible as thats what the forum is about.
       
      So members please think when posting problems to be solved and take a quick look through this checklist below as the more information you can give us the quicker we can try to resolve your problems and get you up and running.
       
      The very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE  This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems. What are you trying to install? (Kodi, The Beast, Spartan Wizard etc ) What are you trying to install onto?  ( Device you are trying to update/get working ) Method of installing? ES File Explorer or File Manager etc. Let us know how far you are getting until you run into problems. The problem you are having and any error messages. Always try and give us a brief description and order of what you are doing until you get to the point where you are having your problem. Please do not post multiple posts on the same issue as it will get deleted and a warning will be issued NO troubleshooting in pm or by mail as it does not benefit others with the same issue   
      So a typical question “Help I can't install the Beast wizard !” ( does not tell us a lot does it ) 
       
      If it looks something like "Help I am trying to install The Beast wizard from The Beast Site on my Fire Stick using File Manager and I keep getting an error saying the link cannot be resolved".
       
      This straight away tells us what we need to know that you're using a Fire Stick and trying to install and download The Beast Wizard from one of our Beast sites using the file manager hence we can now help you straight away without asking you what are you installing on etc saving you a lot of time and frustration and getting you going a lot quicker.
       
      By the way my answer to the example problem above is item number 1 ( ISP Blocking ) as this can be caused by your ISP blocking software also make sure you type the link correctly 
       
      Anyway I hope this post explains that the more information you can give us the quicker the members and staff can get you up and running.

      KODI V17.1 “Krypton” OFFICIALLY RELEASED
       
      This is the bugfix release for v17.1 “Krypton” which contains our continuous effort to further improve the v17 release. Our team tried to tackle as much of the reported problems as possible with the limited resources we have. We do want to note that since we are just a small team some of the reported bugs might not get fixed due to lack of developers or time. As such we would certainly welcome any developer who has the ability to help us out to try and fix the bugs he or she encounters and submit it to our code base for review. We sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply helping out others with answering their questions.
      Fixes done in this release:
      Update Estuary and Estouchy with some bugfixes and improvements Fix EDL skipping Fix slow song smartplaylist Several PVR fixes Update Chorus webinterface Fix addons not being marked broken when they are updated with broken flag Add limiter on random songs which should prevent large memory usage on big libraries Improve keyboard mapping during button mapping Improve analog stick handling Improve plugin performance when building the content list Include RTMP inputstream add-on for Windows Don’t close subtitle stream when switching audio Fix replaygain for music files Fix controllers buttons on Android Fix music cleanup hanging on large MySQL music database Fix use of SMB on Android on new installs Fix possible Kodi upgrade migration hang during add-on update process Add check in Windows installer for Service Packs and updates that Kodi needs to operate Don’t try to read tags from internet audio streams Add setting to disable controller rumble on notifications A full list can be found here and here.
      What’s new?
      You can read up on all the v17 changes here: Kodi v17.0 “Krypton”
      Krypton nightly builds
      As you may have noticed we only release a new beta or release candidate once in a while that includes a list of fixes that were done since previous release. Additionally we also create these so called nightly builds specifically for Krypton that include the latest fixes that our developers have included and will end up in the next release candidate or final release. By providing these builds we hope that users who install these will help us confirm the problem was fixed or identify if we accidentally created a regression from previous builds made. These nightlies are safe to install on top of the Kodi v17 you already have installed on your device and can be found on the download page. Be sure to get these builds from the Krypton folder and not from any other.
      Conclusion
      Should you want to download and install this build please visit our download page. You can install these build just on top of your current Kodi installation without doing a reinstall or cleanup as we do a full migration if needed.
