UK Bill to Tackle Pirate Kodi Box Sellers Withdrawn

UK Bill to Tackle Pirate Kodi Box Sellers Withdrawn

It recently became known that Members of Parliament and industry players were planning to clamp down on modified Kodi and other IPTV devices that let users access valuable content for free, through closing loopholes in copyright legislation to target sellers. However, their proposal was eventually rejected.


Today, pirate streams of the video content are accessible via dedicated hardware devices and are probably the most evident in the United Kingdom, where the authorities made an attempt to target sellers of modified Kodi-enabled devices. Members of Parliament have been discussing proposals to the Digital Economy Bill aimed to tackle the sale of devices loaded with software linking streams of infringing entertainment content. The new clause was supported by the SNP’s Callum Kerr, who said that people would continue to innovate when it comes to obtaining pirate content. Besides, he also confessed that someone in Parliament offered him to buy a pirate device. Such devices come pre-loaded, and are basically designed to allow people to avoid paying for content that they know they should pay for.

At the moment, this activity is covered by criminal law, and the City of London police force is investigating cases – so far, more than 500 set-top boxes have been seized in 2016, and a man was arrested for fraud and IP offenses. Besides, the government already has a strategy for tackling IP crime with a specific focus on dealing with the problem of IPTV, so using the existing legislation is the way forward, and the new clause was eventually withdrawn.

n2kmaster avatar1 xbox, 2 android tv boxes, and i still don't use anything illegal on this platform. Banning and what not of kodi itself isn't solving anything considering most of the features are even in vlc if you actually looked. It's like saying ban windows/linux/mac etc cuz they can run utorrent cuz some torrents are illegal.

Bexman avatarWell ... I'm setting up my Kodi box tomorrow. No legal issues in Australia AFAIK and even if there was, who gives a toss? Still, considering how much I download, I wonder how useful it will be to me. Guess I'll find out!
