Changes in the ownership of domains used by Kodi piracy addons to stream pirate content have raised concerns that anti-piracy groups could be monitoring the streams.
With this firm now in control of the domains questions are being raised about whether the firm is monitoring their traffic, which would in turn report user’s IP addresses.
Is streaming illegal?
There have been multiple reports recently about the legality of buying, selling, and using Kodi streaming boxes.
However, with the IP addresses of illegal streamers this law firm could potentially be in a position to go after these individuals in the future.
But, for those using Kodi for its intended purpose (ie. as a fully-featured and customisable media player) this development could be good news, since it has the potential to allow the authorities to separate the good Kodi users from the bad.
