      đŸ”„đŸ˜ĄđŸ”„ Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down 16th November 2017 đŸ”„đŸ˜ĄđŸ”„   11/16/2017

      Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down After MPAA Threatens Kodi Developer JSergio123 Millions of Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users will be displeased to hear that the Colossus repository has been shut down! We don’t have much information as of yet, but from what we’ve heard jsergio123 was threatened by the MPAA earlier today. We haven’t heard from him directly, but different sources have been saying things about what’s happening. He was told to immediately cease Kodi addon development. In case you don’t know who jsergio123 is, he’s been into Kodi addon development for quite some time now, developing different addons over the years. He was also part of the Colossus group, but as far as we have been told, he wasn’t actually contributing to the development of allegedly infringing Kodiaddons such as Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. This is going to be bad news for Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users unless someone steps up to the plate and takes over development. Since the Colossal repository has been deleted, users will have to install a new repository in order to continue to receive updates in the event that another developers takes over Covenant development. It should be noted that none of the Colossus developers nor addons were part of TV ADDONS since we relaunched our site in August. Whether or not he was doing anything wrong, the threat of legal action from the MPAA would be enough for anyone to call it a day. He wasn’t making any money from his development, and no mere mortal can afford a costly legal fight with the big day MPAA. He would go bankrupt fighting to continue developing addons for which he didn’t benefit. We haven’t heard anything about the rest of the Colossal repository developers, but the MPAA identifying one of their own seems to have been enough to scare Echo Coder into deleting his GitHub repositories and Twitter account as well. As far as we have been told, only jsergio123 received a cease and desist, in which they held him responsible for everything in the Colossal repo, including Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. As for URLResolver development, TV ADDONS has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. We plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement. We really hope that new developers will come forward and contribute Kodi addon code at our URLResolver Development GitHub page. We wish jsergio123 the best in all his future endeavours and thank him for tweeting his endorsement for TV ADDONS earlier today. TV ADDONS is prepared to fight this fight, to ensure that copyright law isn’t expanded. The law is on our side, but our opponents are fierce and lawyers don’t work for free. If you’d like to contribute to our legal battle, please feel free to do so via our donation page on TVAddons   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

      đŸ”„đŸ”„đŸ”„THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENTđŸ”„đŸ”„đŸ”„   11/17/2017

      đŸ”„đŸ”„đŸ”„THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENTđŸ”„đŸ”„đŸ”„   THE IMPORTANCE OF URLResolver EXPLAINED WHY MOST THINGS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT The shutdown of the Colossus repo and the two other developers’ addons is undoubtedly a severe blow to the Kodi scene. But, while many casual users might be familiar with Colossus and Bennu, most won’t appreciate the importance of URLResolver. Most recently maintained by jsergio12 and distributed via a well know add-on distributor, this is an extremely important addon. Here’s how it works. When Kodi plays content using addons, whether that’s a movie or TV show, links to that content have to be obtained (scraped) from sites hosting it. This means that all addons would ordinarily have to have their own code in order to find the URLs where that content can be obtained. It can be a different process for every video host, a big job for any developer. That’s where URLResolver comes in. This clever tool helps other addons access content by resolving video hosting site URLs to enable related content to be played in Kodi. URLResolver is a really important tool but since it comes packaged with addons that rely on it, most users won’t even know it’s already on their system. They’ll definitely miss it when it’s gone, since among other things it was utilized by the extremely popular Covenant addon. All may not be lost though, since the well know add-on distributor indicate they’ll try to keep URLResolver alive. The well know add-on distributor has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. They say they plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement,” the site said.   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

What Actually Happened to Our Original Domain Names (TV ADDONS and XBMC HUB)

What Actually Happened to Our Original Domain Names

(TV ADDONS and XBMC HUB)

There appears to be a bit of misinformation spreading online (mostly in UK tabloids that are owned by the same media companies who are suing everybody). Certain people are under the impression that our user data and infrastructure may has been compromised. We’re hearing rumours that our original domain names are being “used by a law firm to spy on users.” This is simply false! There is nothing to worry about, in fact we hope that we have proven to everyone that we will do everything possible to protect our users privacy.

The most important thing to note is that a court judgement already said that our domains were unlawfully seized, and that everything should be returned to us. The only reason why they haven’t been returned is because: everyone has the right to an appeal. They initiated the appeal for the sole intention of delaying the return of our property. It is very unlikely that they win an appeal, after having been found to have acted unlawfully and violated our founder’s rights.

Now onto the subject of the law firm that is now marked as a registrant on the domains. This law firm that is holding our domains is not the law firm who is suing us. They are what is called an independent counsel, or neutral party. They have a legal obligation to protect our property at all cost, and prevent anyone (especially the law firm who is suing is) from gaining access to them. The law firm who is holding them is doing nothing more than protecting our property until the time that it will finally be returned after the appeal takes place.

As for the idea that a law firm could use the domains to monitor users. They are not the police, private companies cannot setup sting operations against private individuals using backdoors. Furthermore, the idea that the court would allow them to execute code on users’ devices without their consent, is a bit farfetched as well. And this is not comparable to when rightsholders monitor torrent sites, because they do that through public means without needing any backdoors, which is why they can legally monitor that way.

Lastly, for those who seem to think that our founder is giving up people’s information. He was always the person who was by far the most concerned about Kodi user privacy and security. He did not have allowed himself to know the true identities of anyone in the community. He constantly reminded the entire community about his views on privacy and security. And if you still aren’t convinced, ask yourself why there would be stories in the news about his human rights being violated if he was giving up people’s private information to entities in secret.

We have the law on our side, we always obeyed copyright regulations as required. We will beat any frivolous lawsuits brought against us, assuming we aren’t forced to give up due to lack of financial resources beforehand. We understand that most people can’t afford to donate, which is fine, but please help us rebuild by sharing our new site address on social media and by visiting our web site and discussion forums often.

If you read until this point, you deserve to know that we have the next generation of Kodi addons in the works, addons that will change the way people scrape content online. We aren’t going anywhere, the best is yet to come. We built this community from nothing and look what it became. Right now we are way further ahead than when we started years ago, we’ll continue to innovate and become bigger than ever, believe that.

As for the return of the tvaddons.ag and xbmchub.com domain names, it won’t be until their appeal can be heard, which could take between 8-15 months, meaning by the time we get them back they’ll be useless. Facebook is one of the most popular sites on the net, if it was down for 8 months, would you keep trying to access it? And our little community is definitely not Facebook.

 
Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

      THE IMPORTANCE OF URLResolver EXPLAINED
      WHY MOST THINGS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT
      The shutdown of the Colossus repo and the two other developers’ addons is undoubtedly a severe blow to the Kodi scene. But, while many casual users might be familiar with Colossus and Bennu, most won’t appreciate the importance of URLResolver. Most recently maintained by jsergio12 and distributed via a well know add-on distributor, this is an extremely important addon. Here’s how it works.
      When Kodi plays content using addons, whether that’s a movie or TV show, links to that content have to be obtained (scraped) from sites hosting it. This means that all addons would ordinarily have to have their own code in order to find the URLs where that content can be obtained. It can be a different process for every video host, a big job for any developer. That’s where URLResolver comes in.
      This clever tool helps other addons access content by resolving video hosting site URLs to enable related content to be played in Kodi. URLResolver is a really important tool but since it comes packaged with addons that rely on it, most users won’t even know it’s already on their system.
      They’ll definitely miss it when it’s gone, since among other things it was utilized by the extremely popular Covenant addon. All may not be lost though, since the well know add-on distributor indicate they’ll try to keep URLResolver alive.

      Dish Network has identified the people behind the TVAddons website and the ZemTV Kodi addon. The company submitted an amended complaint in a Texas District Court where the two stand accused of copyright infringement. TVAddons, however, maintains its innocence and sees the case as a threat to online innovation.

      Earlier this year, American satellite and broadcast provider Dish Network targeted two well-known players in the third-party Kodi add-on ecosystem.
      In a complaint filed in a federal court in Texas, add-on ZemTV and the TVAddons library were accused of copyright infringement. As a result, both are facing up to $150,000 for each offense.
      Initially, the true identities of the defendants unknown and listed as John Does, but an amended complaint that was submitted yesterday reveal their alleged names and hometowns.
      The Texas court previously granted subpoenas which allowed Dish to request information from the defendants’ accounts on services including Amazon, Github, Google, Twitter, Facebook and PayPal, which likely helped with the identification.
      According to Dish ZemTV was developed by Shahjahan Durrani, who’s based in London, UK. He allegedly controlled and maintained the addon which was used to stream infringing broadcasts of Dish content.
      “Durrani developed the ZemTV add-on and managed and operated the ZemTV service. Durrani used the aliases ‘Shani’ and ‘Shani_08â€Č to communicate with users of the ZemTV service,” the complaint reads.
      The owner and operator of TVAddons is listed as Adam Lackman, who resides in Montreal, Canada. This doesn’t really come as a surprise, since Lackman is publicly listed as TVAddons’ owner on Linkedin and was previously named in a Canadian lawsuit.
      While both defendants are named, the allegations against them haven’t changed substantially. Both face copyright infringement charges and potentially risk millions of dollars in damages.
      Durrani directly infringed Dish’s copyrights by making the streams available, the plaintiffs note. Lackman subsequently profited from this and failed to take any action in response.
      “Lackman had the legal right and actual ability to supervise and control this infringing activity because Lackman made the ZemTV add-on, which is necessary to access the ZemTV service, available for download on his websites.
      “Lackman refused to take any action to stop the infringement of DISH’s exclusive rights in the programs transmitted through the ZemTV service,” the complaint adds.
      TorrentFreak spoke to a TVAddons representative who refutes the copyright infringement allegations. The website sees itself as a platform for user-generated content and cites the DMCA’s safe harbor as a defense. “TV ADDONS is not a piracy site, it’s a platform for developers of open source add-ons for the Kodi media center. As a community platform filled with user-generated content, we have always acted in accordance with the law and swiftly complied whenever we received a DMCA takedown notice.”
      The representative states that it will be very difficult for them to defend themselves against a billion dollar company with unlimited resources, but hopes that the site will prevail.
       
      The new TVAddons  
      After the original TVAddons.ag domain was seized in the Canadian lawsuit the site returned on TVaddons.co. However, hundreds of allegedly infringing add-ons are no longer listed.
      The site previously relied on the DMCA to shield it from liability but apparently, that wasn’t enough. As a result, they now check all submitted add-ons carefully.
      “Since complying with the law is clearly not enough to prevent frivolous legal action from being taken against you, we have been forced to implement a more drastic code vetting process,” the TVAddons representative says.
      If it’s not entirely clear that an add-on is properly licensed, it won’t be submitted for the time being. This hampers innovation, according to TVAddons, and threatens many communities that rely on user-generated content.
      “When you visit any given web site, how can you be certain that every piece of media you see is licensed by the website displaying it? You can assume, but it’s very difficult to be certain. That’s why the DMCA is critical to the existence of online communities.”
      Now that both defendants have been named the case will move forward. This may eventually lead to an in-depth discovery process where Dish will try to find more proof that both were knowingly engaging in infringing activity.
      Durrani and Lackman, on the other hand, will try to prove their innocence.
       
      A copy of the amended complaint is available here (pdf).
        Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.
