Kodi Add-On Developer Arrested On Same Day as Popular Repo Goes Down
 

 
image
Police in the UK say they have arrested a man in the north of England for developing and maintaining a Kodi add-on offering illegal streams. On the same day that the arrest took place, the popular Supremacy add-on went down in mysterious circumstances. Official sources have not linked the two events but there are some coincidences.

While overall interest in Kodi appears to be on a downward trend, millions of people still use the software to organize their media.

Larger numbers still augment Kodi with software add-ons which allow them to stream movies, TV shows, and sports events, often in a way that infringes copyright. As a result, entertainment companies and their agents are keen to reduce the use of such tools.

With little fanfare, the Covert Development and Disruption Team of the UKís North West Regional Organised Crime Unit recently announced that there had been an arrest in connection with this kind of activity.

According to police, a 40-year-old man was detained in Winsford, Cheshire, following a joint investigation with anti-piracy outfit Federation Against Copyright Theft. The unit said that man was arrested in connection with creating and maintaining a Kodi add-on configured to supply illegal online streams.

ďThe scale of the offending was significant and affected broadcasters and rights owners in the UK and worldwide. Police searched an address, seized evidence, and interviewed the suspect has later been released on police bail pending investigation,Ē a statement reads.

Typically for this kind of announcement, details are scarce. Other than location and age, no further details were made available on the alleged offender, or the add-on that had triggered the referral from FACT. As a result, itís not currently possible to positively identify the person or the add-on in question.

What we do know is that last Friday, on the very same day that the police say they carried out the arrest of the man in Cheshire, a very popular add-on and a*sociated repository (repo) went down without warning or explanation.

Supremacy is a popular Kodi add-on that provides access to a wide range of content, from movies and TV shows to live sports. The add-on works by Ďscrapingí or aggregating content from existing online sources, presenting them inside the add-on for users to select.

While other repos have also offered the add-on, Supremacy was once available for download from the Supremacy repo, previously located at visit this link https://2Supremacy.uk. That domain was registered with Namecheap on March 25, 2019 and isnít set to expire until March 25, 2021.

However, there is an additional note in the domainís WHOIS which suggests something is wrong.

Other signs of changes on June 13, 2019 can be found on the repo itself.

While no longer accessible, cached versions of the site show that the repo did indeed disappear on the same day, with the /addon and /repo directories both modified at 08:01 am. An a*sociated Facebook page and Telegram group also disappeared in a similar fashion.

TorrentFreak contacted several sources, none of which were able or willing to provide us with the precise location of the Supremacy developer or his exact age, so definitively connecting the dots isnít possible. We were told that there are rumors of an arrest but thatís a common occurrence when established and thriving projects go down with no explanation.

Returning to the confirmed arrest last week, itís unclear why FACT chose to refer the add-on developer, whoever he is, to the police. There is yet to be a successful criminal prosecution of an add-on developer in the UK or elsewhere. Several have been threatened privately, however.

TorrentFreak requested comment from the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit and FACT but at the time of publication neither had responded.

Warez?! Is that even still a thing? I remember I used to use that back in 99.

Not to get movies/games really, just to mainly get my computer infected with every single fu*king trojan virus known to man and have to rebuild it every other month

If it's lagging then your internet and/or device is trash. Kodi on Xbox One X with Gigabit (1000Mbps) internet don't skip a beat...

I haven't used kodi in years but I feel like this guy could beat this if he had money for a lawyer. And most kodi developers I have seen on Twitter like vallahara and the beast all quit after getting threatening letters. I bet he got one and didn't care
