People appear to be getting around the crackdown on so-called FULLT-loaded Kodi boxesâ€� on various online platforms by simply misspelling keywords, such as the names of legitimate content providers, in product listings.
One of the tricks sellers seem to be using to their advantage is deliberately misspelling companiesâ€™ names.

Other listings promise â€œSLY / Virmin ( IPTV ) Premium channels or Full sly channels [and] all 3pm [Premier League] games.
E Illicit streaming devices are illegal and unsafe, Kieron Sharp, the CEO of the Federation Against Copyright Theft, Bay.
Facebook and Amazon have banned the sale of these devices, but criminals are beating the system by purposely misspelling brand namesÂ âˆ’ we need to see tighter controls in place to help stop the sale of these devices.â€�
Earlier this week, piracy-tracking firm MUSO released new data suggesting that piracy is more popular now than it has ever been before.
