Kodi add-on developers quit after legal threats


Two Kodi add-on developers have quit the scene, and the Colossus add-on repository has been shut down, after cease and desist letters were served on them, reported TorrentFreak.

The letters were sent by ACE, whose board members include Netflix, Amazon, and Walt Disney.

“Sorry to say, but I am stopping all development of the urlresolver, metahandler, and my other add-ons. I am not responsible for Covenant and Bennu, but Colossus has agreed to delete the repo too,” jsergio123 said on Twitter.

TorrentFreak stated that the developer behind the Colossus repository, Covenant, and Bennu has also retired from the scene after receiving legal threats.

“The infringing add-ons provide unlawful access to protected copyright works, including works owned by, or exclusively licensed to, the Content Companies,” states the legal notice.
