A disgraceful breach of GPL - vimon.me TV

Post by whufclee » Tue Jan 08, 2013 1:46 pm

I was so shocked to see this that I even went on xbmc.org to see what they were going to do about it, however they are aware of the situation and are in discussions with them. Basically vidon.me are selling some android units and they have a download available to their software called vidon.me TV - it is nothing other than a rebranded XBMC Eden! They have disabled some functions so you can't see what version is running and there is no mention of XBMC anywhere on the site, if you click "About" in the software again no mention of XBMC. Supposedly they've managed to get hw decoding working on android but there is no source anywhere to be seen, an obvious breach of the GPL surely? Anyway enough of my rant, if you want to take a look for yourself you can get it on their download page www.vidon.me

Yeh sucks. I hope they manage to get the company to comply.
