About Fake Acer Computer Parts and Software Piracy
About Acer Computers and Piracy
Piracy of Acer parts and copyright material on internet auction
sites is rife.
These items include many
Acer products, copies of Acer products, re-engineered Acer
Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Acer OEM versions
of Windows and other Acer software on eBay. OEM software can
only be legally sold with a new computer, the license cannot be
transferred to another computer and the practice (on eBay) of trying to
justify its sale by supplying a screw or another piece of
hardware is nonsensical (the sale of Acer OEM software is illegal, as
is installing Acer OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this
renders the license invalid). Yet Acer OEM Windows disks can be
bought, as a result of which; Acer Windows software is
currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.
UK Anti Piracy can work
with Acer and eBay to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the
supply of Acer OEM products and pirated Acer software on eBay,
other auction sites and the internet in general.
Beware Fake Acer Laptops
Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Acer AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Acer Laptop Power Supplies. These fake units
are currently being sold online, particularly via well known
online auction sites. Quite apart from being highly illegal,
purchasing these units can be fatal. For there have been cases
where Fake Acer AC Adapters (Fake Acer Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Acer has
no connection with, or control over Fake Acer Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Acer Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Acer Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Acer (or "other brand") batteries and AC
Adapters, for use with Acer computers. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Acer branded parts
and NEVER buy Acer branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other Acer
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
UK Anti Piracy can work
with Acer, online auction sites and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the
supply of Acer OEM products, Fake Acer Computers, Counterfeit
Acer parts and pirated Acer software.
