Fake Advent Computers, Counterfeits and UK Anti Piracy

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 products etc.

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 Advent 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.
