Amazon BANS KODI 'Loaded' Boxes

So after months if not years of us wondering how the likes of Ebay and Amazon are able to profit from the sale of fully loaded KODI boxes, One of these Giants has banned them.

Shopping heavyweights Amazon released the following statement yesterday

Products offered for sale on Amazon should not promote, suggest the facilitation of, or actively enable the infringement of or unauthorized access to digital media or other protected content. Any streaming media player or other device that violates this policy is prohibited from sale on Amazon.

It is your responsibility to source and sell products that do not promote, promise the facilitation of, or actively enable the infringement of or unauthorized access to digital media or other protected content. If you sell these products, we may immediately suspend or terminate your selling privileges and destroy inventory in our fulfillment centers without reimbursement. In addition, if we determine that your account has been used to engage in fraud or other illegal activity, remittances and payments may be withheld or forfeited.

This is an interesting move and one we are sure that others will follow. As we all know these giants love a profit and it will be interesting to see the decline in sales of these devices. We all know the ability to add Kodi and other APKs that may lead to copyright infringement is straight forward, but this move may force sellers of such to head further underground!
