About Fake Toshiba Laptop Parts
About Counterfeit Toshiba Laptop HW and SW
Piracy of Toshiba parts and copyright material on internet
auction sites is widespread.
These items include many
Toshiba products, copies of Toshiba products, re-engineered Toshiba
Copies of Toshiba software is widely
available. Some copied Toshiba software can
contain viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software.
Additionally; some individuals and companies sell Toshiba OEM versions
of Windows and other Toshiba 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 Toshiba OEM software is illegal, as
is installing Toshiba OEM software on a prebuilt computer and this
renders the license invalid). Yet Toshiba OEM Windows disks can
be bought online, as a result of which; Toshiba Windows software is
currently installed onto many home build and 2nd user computers.
An additional issue is that Toshiba Windows 7 installation
disks do not require the entry of a Product Key
(license) during installation.
Also; there is currently
a serious issue with Counterfeit Toshiba AC Adapters (and other
"brands") - Fake Toshiba 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 Toshiba AC Adapters (Fake Toshiba Laptop Power Supplies)
have overheated, the plastic body has melted and they have burst
into flames - caused serious damage.
Obviously; Toshiba has
no connection with, or control over Fake Toshiba Power Supplies and
these Counterfeit Toshiba Power Supplies look very like Genuine
Toshiba Parts, but the build and component quality is sub-standard
and they are potentially lethal.
As a rule of thumb;
Never buy Fake Toshiba (or "other brand") batteries and AC
Adapters, for use with Toshiba Laptops. If you are unsure whether
it is fake - dont buy it. Only buy UK sourced Toshiba branded parts
and NEVER buy Toshiba branded AC Adapters, Batteries or other
parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.
Anti Piracy can work with Toshiba, online auction sites
and the authorities to significantly reduce - hopefully
eradicate the supply of Toshiba OEM products, Fake
Toshiba Laptops, Counterfeit Toshiba parts and pirated
