eBay is clamping down on piracy-enabled Kodi streaming boxes. So-called 'fully-loaded' boxes will be removed from sale, the auction site has said.

Kodi boxes can be sold with software pre-installed that lets the user illegally stream TV shows, films and live sport. Such boxes are known as 'fully-loaded', because they require no extra downloads in order to watch illegally.

Recently, there have been several high-profile prosecutions of people caught selling said boxes. Amazon has also banned them from sale, and now eBay has too.

An eBay spokesperson told The Sun: "We run several initiatives designed to combat the infringement of intellectual property rights, including the Verified Rights Owner Program (VeRO).

"We work with the police and regulators to ensure that all listings on eBay comply with the law. There are blocks in place to prevent the listing of illegal items, but we also constantly monitor our marketplace.

"Anyone found to be knowingly selling items that don't comply with the law will be investigated and could face account restrictions or suspension."

The message is loud and clear: don't sell fully-loaded Kodi boxes, and don't try and illegally watch content online.
