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