About Fake Sony Vaio Computer Parts
About Counterfeit Sony Computer Parts
Piracy of Sony copyright material on
internet auction sites is widespread.
These items include many
Sony products, copies of Sony products, re-engineered Sony
Copies of Sony software is widely available. Some copied Sony software can
contain viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software.
Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Sony OEM versions
of Windows and other Sony 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 Sony OEM software is illegal, as
is installing Sony OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this
renders the license invalid). Yet Sony OEM Windows disks can be
bought online, as a result of which; Sony Windows software is
currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.
Beware Fake Sony Vaio Laptop
Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Sony AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Sony 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 Sony AC Adapters (Fake Sony Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Sony has
no connection with, or control over Fake Sony Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Sony Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Sony Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Sony (or "other brand") batteries and AC
Adapters, for use with Sony computers. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Sony branded parts
and NEVER buy Sony branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other Sony
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
Anti Piracy can work with Sony, online auction sites and
the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully
eradicate the supply of Sony OEM products, Fake Sony
Computers, Counterfeit Sony parts and pirated Sony
