No doubt he was advertising and was the victim of his own conviction.
Im keen to hear the verdict on Brian Thompson.
How do people really think they can advertise all over the internet with images/logos and written text of football/movies/IPTV for a one off cost and get away with it.

I never like to hear of them stories as in post #1

But greed and stupidity can be there own downfall.

There's a point, didn't see anything about proceeds of crime mentioned in that story.

I could not aggre with you anymore @HibbyDave

The sentence is to send out a warning to others. It's been made clear over the last few months that FACT (federation against copyright theft) is throwing everything at it. Especially kodi.
Would these be the people charging £80 for kodi on firestick?
it should cost £35

are these the people advertising all over the internet.
What did they expect? It to go unnoticed?

4 years is mad!!!
theres method to the madness. (fear)

Update:
Also anyone using kodi without a VPN could be asking for a letter/email soon from big brother.
(play safe folks)

I was always under the impression that kodi itself was perfectly legal. How you choose to use it is another matter.

Kodi IS perfectly legal; Kodi by itself pretty much constitutes as an Operating System . The Addons which are installed separately are a different story.

How do I use a vpn on a fire stick? I used to have one for Netflix before they banned them on my PlayStation and Xbox, but not sure which ones or how to have the fire stick respond to the vpn

I can recall a member on here getting an email and also I know a former work mate of mine getting a letter warning them that there IP address had been detected. The detail in the letter even went into detail on what build was being used on kodi at that time.
Im not aware of fines being issued yet. Maybe they give you a warning first?
But don't give the fookers a chance to warn you.

have a look here very secure VPN

kodi is perfectly legal. so they can send al the emails they like. they will need a lot more than that to take legal action. and this guy was busted for fraud not selling Kodi boxes. his own advertising got him done.

kodi is perfectly legal.
Are the addons legal?
Im not aware of many people running kodi without addons.
My point is to take a simple precaution to avoid any hassle.
