Found 18th Nov 2015
I dont understand how everyone around me is getting free films with the Amazon fire stick. I have always been a bit of a prude with my Films I like to watch them in quality picture not one thats been videoed in a cinema. I went to search for a fire stick on ebay to get a price comparison and they all have this 'Kodi' on it? Is it illegal, will it stop soon and should I buy the stick from Amazon and get the prime for £59 for the year? Help appreciated as Now Tv is £9.99 a month and thinking of Switching, even tho I have like two chrome casts!!!!

​believe there was an EU ruling last year that said it was legal, but may be wrong

I use kodi but prefer my movies with reasonable video quality but must have 5.1 audio on action type movies for my home entertainment system. So yes I'm a prude and won't watch camrips but it just means I have to wait a few more weeks until DVD/Bluray rips are released.

Downloading isn't illegal it's the sharing of content that's illegal.
So the Amazon Fire stick with Kodi is Legal?!

No brother, you're a prune.

Prune.

People need to understand that Kodi is simply an open source piece of software to run a home theatre/media centre. Completely legal and quite useful. Similar to Plex (as advertised on the Fire TV packaging). There are other pieces of software that can be added to Kodi (addons) to allow for the streaming of media content from various sources worldwide. Whether streaming copyrighted content (using addons through Kodi) is legal or not, depends on where you live. There is case law from the European Court of Justice to support the argument that streaming copyrighted content (that is provided free of charge without subscription) is legal but downloading/making copies of it is not.
