Thread: Kodi?

  1. #1

    Kodi?

    Ok, I've heard a bit about this.

    *EVERYTHING* in my bones says, whatever you want to do, it's going to be illegal, do NOT mess with this.

    What do y'all say?

    I'm staying away from it because of my job's requirement that I not be involved with pirated software. Gotta pass the security clearance questions. I think you're probably smart to stay away from it. The concensus here at work is divided, but I figure better safe than sorry.

    Kodi is just the the new name for XBMC, there is nothing inherently illegal or wrong with the software and has many legitimate uses. It does however allow you to install plugins that allow you to stream pirated content. If that is all you'd use it for then stay way.

    What they are talking about is the glut of "Unlocked" Firesticks coming "preloaded" with all those apps for pirating stuff unlocked. Daughter and girlfriend were gifted one by the girlfriends parents........ I personally would never use one.

    Really? I never would have thought this would come up for a security clearance. I'm assuming it's like Napster was when it first started? If so, were there that many citizens who got in trouble for using it?

    back in what day ?

    I knew this guy ... he told me one time, he did not get cable tv for the longest time, because people thought - back then {1980's} the GOV. could listen in on conversations in the living room through the TV when it was turned off








    I slowly backed away and left the room ....

    Never mind security clearance and employment issues with this kind of stuff ... in what world is it OK to steal someone else's artistic output?
