13Clowns, Maverick TV and Overeasy Kodi Addon Developers Call It Quits

In the aftermath of TorrentFreak reporting that the developer of the Yoda addon had possibly been arrested in the United Kingdom, several other Kodi addon developers have just decided to call it quits.

It appears that the developers behind the 13Clowns, Maverick TV and Overeasy addons were scared into retirement. Until now, any Kodi developers who were the subject of copyright complaints had been sued in civil court, not criminal.

While it is still unclear whether the Kodi addon developer who was arrested was indeed the Yoda developer known as Supremacy, the whole situation has certainly made British developers very uneasy.

Sources have told us that all of these developers had been loosely working together, so it’s not surprising that the news that one of them had been busted would have this kind of impact.

Each of the developers has since deleted their repositories, with Overeasy and 13Clowns actually going as far as pushing new versions of their addons which essentially disable all functionality.

Here is a screenshot of the message displayed to users who loaded the 13Clowns add-on within the past few hours…

It’s sad to see self-censorship once again taking place, but as we’ve said before, the community must be decentralised in order to stay strong. Developers working together, or knowing each other’s identities, is never a good idea.
