About Fake Advent and eSystem Computer Parts
About Advent Computers and Piracy
Piracy of DSG Retail parts and copyright material on internet auction
sites such as eBay is widespread.
These items include many
DSG products, copies of DSG products, re-engineered DSG
Copies of Advent, eSystem and other
software is widely available. Some copied software can
contain viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software.
Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Advent OEM versions
of Windows and other Advent, eSystem and other 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 Advent OEM software is illegal, as
is installing Advent OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this
renders the license invalid). Yet Advent OEM Windows disks can be
bought on eBay, as a result of which; Advent Windows software is
currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.
UK Anti Piracy can work
with DSG Retail to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the
supply of DSG Retail OEM products and pirated Advent, eSystem
and other software on eBay,
other auction sites and the internet in general.

Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Advent AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Advent 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 Advent AC Adapters (Fake Advent Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Advent has
no connection with, or control over Fake Advent Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Advent Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Advent Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Advent (or "other brand") batteries and AC
Adapters, for use with Advent computers. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Advent branded parts
and NEVER buy Advent branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
UK Anti Piracy can work
with Advent, online auction sites and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the
supply of Advent OEM products, Fake Advent Computers, Counterfeit
Advent parts and pirated Advent software.
