Experts: It's Unlikely ‘Pirate’ Kodi Users Will Get In Trouble

Since the "experts" aren't the ones going to be on the receiving end of a lawsuit or jail time, I think I'm going to just go ahead and avoid using Kodi add-ons to pirate copyrighted material for now.

While it’s definitely illegal in Europe and the US to share copyrighted content without permission using BitTorrent, no one is really clear whether streaming content via Kodi has the same status.
