Counterfeit has been a sustaining problem in electronics industry. Its the people who have to stand against it. If the people say No to counterfeit components and products, there wont be that market. Otherwise as long as it gets sold it would keep emerging in the market.

People buy counterfeit goods because they are marketed ingeniously, often giving the impression to the customer that these goods are as good as original (the goods  itself may carry fake tags) and therefore this market needs to be stopped to ensure that customers don't get harassed. The goods bearking fake names are bought by customers thinking that they are real ones and when they break down the people who bought them blame the real company.

Such products have to be stopped from being shipped inside the States. Better trading laws have to be enforced to ensure that counterfeit goods do not enter the electronics marketplace. It easily tarnishes reputation of the companies and people alike.

Some fake goods are easy to spot and others not so.  I worry about fake high tech products as I am not sure the average Joe could tell the difference sometimes. I know I struggle sometimes.

@sp, You are right on that, I guess you meant "consumers" are the ones to stop counterfeit because counterfeits are made by people but if consumers would say NO, it will cub the consequences of using counterfeit stuffs in the society

@ anandvy, It is not in all cases that counterfeit carries same names as the original, but one thing is sure about it and that is its mostly cheaper than the original

@anandvy, Some counterfeit goods are hard to identify, except you are well informed about it, you may nerver be able to differentiate them. Moreover, some counterfeit goods are smuggled in one way or the other.

@flyinscot, I feel consumers need to be educated and orientated about counterfeits. This can be done by companies that noticed that their products have been intimated and also by the Government.

Hailey, eventhough they aware about this, the end customers can't do anything; because the precautions are taken care from the point where components are sourcing.
