The only way to prevent counterfeit products is by targetting the people who is manufacturing and bringing them to market..

Well, China started out that way but right now, they have a legit business model and they wouldn't want to see that go somewhere else because of the counterfeit issue getting out of hands.

China, officially, has to defend the legit businesses, even if they, behind closed doors, support counterfeit.

What You Really Need to Know About the Open Market

"Not all non-franchised distributors are created equal. Many companies that play in the open (non-authorized) distribution market have gone to great lengths to ensure that the components they sell are counterfeit-free. In this Live Chat, Dawn Gluskin, founder and CEO of distributor SolTec Electronics, will talk about what differentiates these companies from unscrupulous open-market brokers."

We need something to minimize the risk from products being counterfeited and shut the door upon 99% of counterfeiters (hopefully) while as a layman without technical knowledge to differentiate real from fake. 

So far, in hologram industry HGT Deep 3D hologram technology (http://www.hgt-global.com) can fulfil these requirements.  As far as existing technology in the world, the counterfeiting risk on this type of hologram is Zero.

To apply a banknote technology on label form, the most advanced and traceability security features are to embed a security thread on the label (http://hgt-global.com/security_paper.html).  The quantified risk is equal banknote being conterfeited.

Well, the China of today is not likely to do that afterall that has been the a means by which China has been sustaining her economy.

I feel they have gain ground though, so i expect then to upgrade and start manufacturing a more quality parts

The counterfeit problem should be seen at a national level and be able to create treaties with the main manufacturers to try to solve the problem. Although I'm sure China isn't willing to commit.

My guess is the primary source for counterfiet parts comes from CHINA. They are one of the only counties that purchase re-claim/scrap elctronronis. They do have millions people keep working at very low wages.

MIL Specification parts are expensive and some have long lead times because Reliability Testing  that is required.

Where do you think conterfiet parts or units come from?

There have beem stories about Jet Fighter engine rubber "O" rings being made from wind shield wiper rubber, made in CHINA, and sold in the US. (We need a HOT Line to call)

For more information on counterfiet parts goggle electronic counterfiet parts, other publications Military & Aerospace Electronics, SMT Weekly Newsletters, Calce/eNews.

you made a good point there Kunmi, efforts can be made to limit the spread of counterfeit parts not that can only reduce it but can not stop it outrightly.

Let me ask you a question garyk, what do you think is the origin of counterfeit parts you are talking about, what is the motivation behind it.

Why do you think counterfeit parts are in circulation despite the originals

I agree with you Taimoorz. It will be a good thing if manufacturers can do that.

In so doing, they will be able to protect their products and preserve their names and intergrity.
