This story has been making the rounds through the Kodi community for some time, but it’s now picked up steam with the recent shut-down of the One Nation Kodi repo. Suffice it to say, the One Nation Kodi repository was shut down by their hosting provider, Plurk (who seem to have some unfriendly relationships with the Kodi community), and their counter-suit won an injunction to shut down the entire Kodi community on the basis that Kodi is a non-profit organization, and thus is not allowed to host copyrighted media. This adds a new layer of complexity to the ongoing debate over Kodi’s legality.
One Nation Kodi Repository has been shut down by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit digital rights group, and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) over piracy concerns. Popular add-ons like Genesis and Merlin have also been taken down by the satellite TV industry. The repo has been providing add-ons for years, which have been frequently updated with new content.
One Nation Portal, a popular source for various Kodi modules and third-party addons, has closed. In a post on their Facebook page, the developers cited legal pressure as the reason for discontinuing the game.
Another popular repository, Kodi UK TV, suffered the same fate earlier this month and closed its services. As a result, several third-party Kodi add-ons that were part of this repository have also been removed.
Third-party Kodi add-ons seem to offer free access to video content, including movies, TV shows, and live broadcasts. On the other hand, Kodi builds offer visual and navigation customizations of Kodi and include many third-party Kodi addons.
Many developers, such as One Nation Portal and Kodi UK TV, have fallen under the radar of copyright holders and production companies. Several of these services have been removed in recent months, including Maverick TV, Supremacy and CotoMovies.
On the One Nation portal, popular builds like Kodi Collusion, Lobo, etc. have been removed. They’re all gone. Addons like World of Wrestling and Loki have been removed from Kodi UK TV.
Impact on the user
If authorities shut down such services, they will likely ask developers for user data as well. And it’s not unusual for developers to agree to share data to settle disputes. This is the case with CotoMovies, which was recently shut down and whose developer mentioned that user data could be shared. Users may have issues here, but I highly doubt they haunt all users.
