No doubt the judgement has already been decided behind closed doors. Nudge nudge wink wink

He was blatantly plastering it all over his shop front that you could buy em and watch all the sports free, leaving the council little choice but to act, when they raided him they found £1000 of pounds worth of boxs all preloaded with apps ready to watch sport and movies free out of the box by him, what an idiot, he could have been more tactful he's asked for it, he deserves to be locked up and bankrupt by the sports and movie company's lawyers, the dirty thief!. :P
Knock that smile off his face they should!. Pay like the rest of us, you scammers drive up prices for rest of us paying people.

If it worked like that then the £16 people were paying for CD albums shortly before Napster hit would have gone up.

Can we not just do away with people that can't figure out how to set up Kodi for themselves?

Android boxes are fine.

Kodi is fine.

Telling people you've loaded additional software that give you sky sports and copyright infringing movies for free ain't fine.

Nothing illegal about an Android TV box. Many TVs have the built in like Sony!!

Personally I think they are useless for sport streaming.

Serve the guy right for overdoing the sell!

The guy selling was just stupid to load these into kodi. He should just load kodi onto them, that way he stays 100% legal.

Hollywood and football are billion dollar industries. Whether that guy is selling these boxes all set up or not will not effect these industries, there will still be people pirating this stuff. I can google it and find it everywhere instantly. And more to the point these industries will still be billion dollar industries, even after taking out a one man band in a little corner tv shop.

Some of the football isn't even shown on UK cable or sky tv, so how do you watch it without watching it illegally or physically going to the match?.

But then he can't make money out of people who can't be bothered to read.

Politicians make money from people that cant (not capable) be able to think.

Where are the Ebay and Amazon prosecutions for aiding and abetting the selling of fully loaded boxes?
