Kodi says it has 'no interest' in stopping users streaming illegal content

Kodi says it has ‘no interest’ in stopping users streaming illegal content despite the fact that it could land them TEN YEARS in prison under controversial new law.

  • Kodi is a free service that streams apps and on-demand services onto your TV 
  • Many of the plug-ins offered host illegal streaming services for films and shows 
  • A bill has ruled that people making the illegal content could go to prison
  • But Kodi has said it has ‘no interest’ in acting as a police for the software, and has urged users to ‘continue using Kodi however you want’

Earlier this month, a controversial new law warned that people using Kodi boxes to stream illegal content in the UK could face up to 10 years in prison.

But despite the new ruling, Kodi has said that it won’t try to stop users watching illegal streams.

The firm claims that it has ‘no interest’ in acting as a police for the software, and has urged users to ‘continue using Kodi however you want.’

Earlier this month, the Digital Economy Bill warned that people making and streaming films using torrents online would be committing a criminal offence.

The ruling affects users in Europe, who will now face up to 10 years in prison if caught streaming illegal content.

In a statement on the landmark ruling, Nathan Betzen, community and project manager for Kodi, said: ‘We are developers and not the police, and we have no interest in acting as police for our own software.

‘Kodi will remain as free and as open as it always has. Feel free to continue using Kodi however you want.’

While the Kodi player itself isn’t illegal, the boxes are being sold with add-ons to stream illegal content.

Mr Betzen claims that the firm doesn’t see this as their problem.

He said: ‘We do ask that if you decide to use Kodi in a way that’s illegal, please leave us out of it.
