Some information for Kodi users, which may affect how they watch TV and Movies.
Popular addons UK Turk, NJM Soccer, and others have removed their add-ons after a malicious Kodi group has stolen their hard work.
Essentially, some groups are maliciously stealing the code from addons of genuine developers and passing it off as theirs, a lot of developers such as UKturks and Metal Kettle etc and more no doubt are either throwing the towel in or suspending their addons.
Update: More Kodi developers have taken their work offline! If you want these great add-ons back, we have to take a STAND as a Kodi community and let “Team Anonymous” scum know that they are not welcome.

A message to Kodi users:
DELETE the Team Anonymous build and add-on now. Don’t support a team who wants to ruin the Kodi community.
Make sure that they hear loud and clear about the damage they are doing to the Kodi community. The information is in UK Turk’s message below.
Here is the message from UK Turk:
As you might be aware over the last few days or so, there has been a so called addon (i use the word very loosely) called Anonymous Group that has taken it upon themselves to copy & paste every single popular addon into their addon without asking for permission & then claiming they are doing it for the Community because we are supposed to be making money every time you guys click on a link which is absolute Rubbish!!
You might say what are you moaning about because the Channels, Movies, Tv Shows are all stolen in the first place & there is no honour among thieves, this might be true but what you have to understand is ive spent over 3 years of my life bringing you guys content which is either hard to find over the internet or you just cant get hold of it, i have made it easier for you guys just to turn your box or your PC on and click on something & you can watch it without disturbance or annoying adverts or popups and if something is not working i always fix, the man hours of my time ive spent i cant get back but i was happy to do it for you guys with no self gain on my part apart from a free kebab here & there lol
Now this Leech has not only copied & pasted the addon but also has published every single addons lists to the public including mine, this i wont TOLERATE so talking with metalkettle i regret to inform UK Turks has been pulled for the time being & other Devs & playlisters will be following suit
I did not want to do this as i was prepared to play the Cat & Mouse game with this frogspawn but after what he has done i have to protect myself, So please dont blame me or mettlekettle.
Once again i am sorry it has come down to this but if we dont take ACTION now there will be no community left and all that will be left will be the sharks that are taking your money or dodgy unstable addons that dont put the work in & are here today & gone tomorrow.
So please be understanding to the cause & vent your frustrations at the proper channels
Thank You for your Support & i hope to see you Guys soon when this has been resolved
An ironic case of the pirates upset about being pirated????
