Amazon’s decision to remove Kodi from its app store is due to piracy concerns. The app itself isn’t illegal, but third-party add-ons can be downloaded that allow users to pirate movies and music through it, reports TorrentFreak.
Kodi is working to put an end to third-party add-ons that allow piracy. It’s also near the finalization of its trademark filing, which it claims will make it easier to combat the piracy add-ons. The Kodi team said that Amazon’s claim was “absurd”, TorrentFreak notes.
