Fake Asus Computers, Counterfeits and UK Anti Piracy

About Fake Asus Computer Parts


About Asus Computers and Piracy



Piracy of Asus parts and copyright material on internet auction sites is rife.

These items include many Asus products, copies of Asus products, re-engineered Asus products etc.

Copies of Asus software is widely available. Some copied Asus software can contain viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software.

Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Asus OEM versions of Windows and other Asus software. OEM software can only be legally sold with a new computer, the license cannot be transferred to another computer and the practice of trying to justify its sale by supplying a screw or another piece of hardware is nonsensical (the sale of Asus OEM software is illegal, as is installing Asus OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this renders the license invalid). Yet Asus OEM Windows disks can be bought, as a result of which; Asus Windows software is currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.

Also; there is currently a serious issue with Counterfeit Asus AC Adapters (and other "brands") - Fake Asus 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 Asus AC Adapters (Fake Asus Laptop Power Supplies) have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst into flames - caused serious damage.

Obviously; Asus has no connection with, or control over Fake Asus Power Supplies and these Counterfeit Asus Power Supplies look very like Genuine Asus Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard and they are potentially lethal.

As a rule of thumb; Never buy Fake Asus (or "other brand") batteries and AC Adapters, for use with Asus computers. If you are unsure whether it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Asus branded parts and NEVER buy Asus branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other Asus parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.

UK Anti Piracy can work with Asus, online auction sites and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the supply of Asus OEM products, Fake Asus Computers, Counterfeit Asus parts and pirated Asus software.
