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
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.
