Facebook ´bans´ KODI

Postby ZKTV » Fri May 26, 2017 11:11 am

Facebook has updated its Commerce Policy to include a ban on "products or items" that facilitate or encourage unauthorized access to digital media. The new rule has almost certainly been put in place to stop the further spread of "fully loaded" set-top devices running modified Kodi and similar software.

13. Products or items that facilitate or encourage unauthorized access to digital media.

The recent move by Facebook was welcomed by Federation Against Copyright Theft chief, Kieron Sharp.
“It is great to see Facebook follow the likes of Amazon and eBay in making changes to their policies to prohibit the sale of illicit streaming devices on their platforms,” Sharpe said.

Exactly why I'd suggest using a good quality VPN service such as NordVPN (https://nordvpn.com/) who are hardhearted in South America and have a zero log retention policy...

Court Grants Subpoenas to Unmask ‘TVAddons’ and ‘ZemTV’ Operators

A District Court in Texas has granted a series of subpoenas to Dish Network, aimed at identifying the people behind the TVAddons website and the ZemTV Kodi addon. This allows Dish to request detailed information on associated accounts of the alleged copyright infringers at services including Amazon, Github, Google, Twitter, Facebook and PayPal.

Earlier this month we broke the news that third-party Kodi add-on ZemTV and the TVAddons library were being sued in a federal court in Texas.

In a complaint filed by American satellite and broadcast provider Dish Network, both stand accused of copyright infringement, facing up to $150,000 for each offence.

While the allegations are serious, Dish doesn’t know the full identities of the defendants.

To find out more, the company requested a broad range of subpoenas from the court, targeting Amazon, Github, Google, Twitter, Facebook, PayPal, and several hosting providers.
