About Fake Dell Computer Parts
About Counterfeit Dell Computer Parts
Piracy of Dell parts and copyright material on internet auction
sites is rife.
These items include many
Dell products, copies of Dell products, Fake Dell Parts, re-engineered Dell
Copies of Dell software
are widely available. Some copied Dell software can
contain viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software.
Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Dell OEM versions
of Windows and other Dell 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 Dell OEM software is illegal, as
is installing Dell OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this
renders the license invalid). Yet Dell OEM Windows disks can be
bought online, as a result of which; Dell Windows software is
currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.
An additional issue is that Dell Windows XP and Dell Windows
Vista installation disks do not require the entry of a Product Key
(license) during installation.
Beware Fake Dell
Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Dell AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Dell 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 Dell AC Adapters (Fake Dell Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Dell has
no connection with, or control over Fake Dell Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Dell Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Dell Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Dell (or "other brand") batteries and AC
Adapters, for use with Dell computers. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Dell branded parts
and NEVER buy Dell branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other Dell
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
UK Anti Piracy can work
with Dell, online auction sites and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the
supply of Dell OEM products, Fake Dell Computers, Counterfeit
Dell parts and pirated Dell software.
