It is increasingly becoming more difficult to spot piracy services because the services are looking more professional and they charge. Piracy devices and services are now trying to make the leap into legitimate shopping centers.
For months now we have heard of booths at flea markets, state fairs, and other places selling piracy devices. Now we have been seeing a growing number of reports that piracy box venders have moved into stores and malls across the United States with professional-looking store fronts.
Thanks to our readers we have confirmed that some of these including military posts at PXs around the United States. (If you are not familiar with what a PX is, think of a mall like you would find in any town in the US but on military bases.)
These sellers are now setting up professional-looking store fronts and booths that sell devices or services for a one-time upfront fee or a low monthly fee with the promise of access to paid TV channels and premium content.
This is further confusing to many Americans because these boxes not only look professional but are being sold at a physical store not some shady website. The stores are also often staffed with people who are more than happy to tell you how all of this is legal.
Content owners are now pushing back as a host of streaming player manufacturers and Kodi add-on makers have found themselves facing expensive lawsuits. It seems that Dish is leading the charge here and has started to sue a growing list of companies that they claim are selling piracy.
Yet we are likely far from seeing the end of this trend. With the low cost of buying a few Android devices, loading up Kodi add-ons, and selling for profit in a few days we are just now seeing a new gold rush in the world of piracy.
We are also seeing companies invest a lot of time and money in building professional-looking services that promote piracy.
The questions now are how will all of these lawsuits play out and will they have any impact on slowing down the growth of piracy.
