Is Streaming Movies on Kodi illegal?
Streaming movies on kodi are in the grey area. UK FACT tells that anyone “making a business” out of selling illegal contentscould potentially face the law. Although it’s not to go after the kodi end user. Those who casually stream a couple of movies every once in a while are extremely unlikely to be prosecuted. As the Open Rights Group notes, Clause 27 of the Act states that criminal liability is to be determined by “causing loss” and “risk of loss” to the owner of the copyright. This is defined as merely failing to pay a licence fee, so ordinary people engaged in domestic “Filesharing” on a non-commercial basis could potentially find themselves facing sentences. Torrents is a kind of “Filesharing” so if you want to stream movies on kodi, never use torrents because it’s kind of “Filesharing”.
