Plex’s add-on for Kodi is now free for everyone — Plex Pass no longer required

To use Plex’s Kodi add-on, however, you historically had to be a Plex Pass subscriber, which costs $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year. That changes today because Plex has announced that their Kodi add-on is now available for anyone to use for free. So if you’re running a Plex server, you can now get the full Plex experience right from within Kodi, without having to switch apps or pay anything. – AFTVnews http://ift.tt/2f0ORgM

Microsoft’s Windows 10 To Block Downloads From Kodi, The Pirate Bay, KickassTorrents & Others

Microsoft’s patent relies on fingerprint recognition to identify the source of these illegal files and block them. Along with blocking these files, users who frequently share files without authorization could end up being singled out and punished. This system, if implemented could be much more effective in stomping out piracy than the current system of the copyright holder issuing legal notices. – Delwyn Pinto, Techworm http://ift.tt/2qaA4pR

Kodi Security Risk Emerges After TVAddons Shutdown

TVAddons’ domains are now being run by a law firm which refuses to answer questions but has the power to do whatever it likes with them, within the law of course. Currently, the domains are lying dormant and aren’t doing anything nefarious, but if that position changes, millions of people will have absolutely no idea anything is wrong. – Andy, TorrentFreak http://ift.tt/2vx8LXt

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
