Kodi, like bit torrents can be seen by "bots" which report illegal stuff.

If you have illegal music on your bittorrent, and no VPN, you may end up getting a notification from your ISP about it. SOmetimes it can end there, sometimes it can be worse. Most ISP's simply notify you and once you respond that "stupid kids blah blah blah, I have reset password" they let it go. Or they give your info to the guys who come in and charge you.

Kodi is the same, and without the VPN, which is not free, but pretty cheap, the same can happen if your accessing an ESPN stream or movie without payment or host.

I tried Kodi while evaluating direction on cutting cable. In the end, I went with PSVue, Tablo for OTA DVR and Plex for the occasional bittorrent download.

I am sure that there are way more knowledgeable peeps around to give you more specific details.
