Netflix, Amazon, and six major studios have gotten together to file suit against TickBox TV as tools for mass infringement. The lawsuit claims the piracy is done from the device linking copyrighted content to streams from the internet. I wonder if the other companies will turn around and sue Amazon for its Fire Sticks and Fire TVs side-loaded with Kodi. The device's marketing materials let users know the box is meant to replace paid-for content, with "a wink and a nod," by predicting that prospective customers who currently pay for Amazon Video, Netflix, or Hulu will find that "you no longer need those subscriptions." TickBox is powered by Android 6.0, along with Kodi, an open source media player software. The box doesn't host any content but rather searches the Internet for streams that it can make available to users.
