Kodi ban: Amazon cracks down on controversial service

The Independent - Tech

Amazon has announced a crackdown on media players that enable consumers to illegally access pirated content. The firm has warned sellers that their accounts face termination if they're found to be selling "certain" prohibited streaming media players. "Products offered for sale on Amazon should not promote, suggest the facilitation of, or actively enable the infringement of or unauthorized access to digital media or other protected content," reads the company's warning. "Any streaming media player or other device that violates this policy is prohibited from sale on Amazon." The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.


Kodi crackdown: Police gather major broadcasters to combat illegal streaming

The Independent - Tech

Police Scotland this week held a conference with the UK's major broadcasters to discuss ways to approach the issue of so-called "fully loaded" media players. A new market for devices pre-loaded with Kodi and a variety of third-party add-ons that enable users to illegally stream copyrighted content, has emerged over recent months. Police Scotland has claimed that "criminal gangs" have now started selling the players, because they see it as a less risky area of crime. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

EU to force Netflix to let people watch films from other countries' libraries

The Independent - Tech

The EU is to force people to watch Netflix libraries from other countries. The European Parliament is finalising legislation that would let people access their online media, like games or films, from their own country. At the moment, doing so is either impossible or very hard, because of restrictions that companies like Netflix put on the use of VPNs and other services. Under the new rules, the parliament will stop content providers from using an IP address as a way of identifying where people are.
