What The “KODI War” is all about

A trademark issue between Kodi, […] and numerous websites, Facebook groups forums and YouTube channels that have used the trademarked name and logo of the foundation has unravelled into what many who follow streaming services and hardware are calling “The KODI War”. […] While a developer may choose to build an app that links to copyright protected content using KODI’s platform this does not make that add-on a “KODIadd-on”. Kodi has its own repository of official add-ons […] But because there are a number of websites and social media sites that use Kodi in their titles that and promote things like ‘Top 5 Kodi add-ons for Free Movies” or “Watch every show on HBO for Free with this KODI Add-On” KODI feels it has caused market confusion as to what its software was meant to do. – Ryan Michael Downey, The Streaming Advisor
