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 products etc.

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 Toshiba parts from China, India or other Eastern countries.

UK 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 Toshiba software.
