Yesterday, in a tweet Team Illuminati announced it will pull out of Kodi after receiving a visit from the world’s most powerful anti-piracy coalition ACE (Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment)
The Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) is a coalition of some 30 major global entertainment companies and film studios aimed at protecting profits from copyrighted material. Among the members of the coalition are Amazon, BBC, CBS, Disney, HBO, NBCUniversal, Netflix and Warner Bros, among others.
Piracy also puts consumers at risk. One in three pirate sites target consumers with malware that can lead to a range of problems including identify theft and financial loss, according to a December 2015 report by Digital Citizens Alliance.
In the tweet they said “Sorry guys our entire team got hit with ACE letters today so we’re leaving twitter, this group closes tomorrow AM thanks for your support all,”

Team Illuminati advertised itself as been a great source for the “very best addons” and “stunning” Kodi builds (pre-configured Kodi installers), all available from its own repository.
Visitors to their repository URL at repo.theunjudged.xyz are greeted with a pentagon-shaped ‘Illuminati’ logo, rather than the usual content.
