2. selling , i.e. taking payment for, setting up kodi addons. like the fully loaded fire tv sticks on ebay.
it is legal to host or write a web site explaining how to install add-ons, so long as you are not charging for the info
kodi itself is open source software. any one can edit, compile, give away for free., print the source code... no restrictions
The strange think about freetelly install is that I'd installed it OK on one pC a few weeks ago. & all that changed since them was my hub got swapped out.
I wonder if a new hub causes virus safe to get turned back on ( though to be honest I don't recall ever turning it off on the old one - unless that was so long ago that I'd forgotten about it ). So I tried multiple other fixes: change directory, uninstall completely with revo, run as admin.. before finding that virus safe was the culprit.
the actual blocked download is I think (without opening the bonnet) just a zip file which contains a config script., and it downloads form the same tvaddons.ag domain as the main program. That domain is not blocked, because the program re-downloaded OK before i disabled virus safe. strange that it allowed the .exe but did not like the .zip....
here is the blurb if anyone wants to explore further
