Crimestoppers is the latest group to slam the Kodi platform for enabling illegal video streaming.

It's launched a national campaign against illegal streaming devices, joining the legions of ISPs, copyright protection bodies, TV companies and government agencies in decrying the devices.

"If other people pay for the content you are watching for free, then you are watching illegally," the group warns. "It is not a grey area: if you load-up, advertise, market, or sell dodgy streaming devices, you are committing a crime."

It goes on: "You may think you're getting a bargain if you buy a box or stick that is fully-loaded with Kodi software and illegal apps or add-ons, or if you subscribe to a service that offers them through your laptop or mobile device. However, you could also be helping to fund organised crime and bringing it into your community."

The campaign encourages people to report anyone advertising, selling, loading up or supplying these kinds of devices. "We won't judge, just listen," the group notes. "Once you put down the phone or click send, that is the end of our communication."

You can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or using this online form.
