"I"m less optimistic. Especially in electronics, the average user isn't very technical and so they wouldn't know one product from another. Those of us hanging out in the technology world forget how much we know about this stuff compared to the average person."

Hailey, I meant exactly the same. End users are bothered only about certain parameters like functionality, finish, features, quality etc.

I read an article that said that many of the products from Alibaba are counterfeit. This highlights for me that reality that even a known source can be part of the counterfeiting problem. From CNN:

"Alibaba has been on a mission to rid its virtual shopping malls of counterfeit goods as it cleans house before a massive initial public offering. But industry experts and company executives say that fakes still flourish on Alibaba's popular platforms -- Taobao, Tmall, AliExpress, Alibaba.com -- and insist the company must do more to crack down on unscrupulous sellers."

"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."

Adeniji, consumers are end users and they won't act because they invested for the device/machine by outright purchase. All necessary measures has to e taken care from the sourcing point at the assembling point.

"A 2013 Anti-Counterfeit Study commissioned by Canon USA found that, though the reality of counterfeit goods is high, consumer awareness remains low. "Most American consumers are unaware of the full risks associated with these potentially dangerous devices,""

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.

@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.
