Westerners do not want eastern world to be self sufficient and stop spread of technology hence this business. Indians are submissive and even feel proud to use western products. Lets learn something from China
India should go for Chinese Policy

India should start its manufacturing hubs like china.
Only thing is that we don't have sufficient electricity.

This shows you how much a product really costs to manufacture. But these big corporations put hefty price tags for their brands, on some thing which costs them only a fraction to make. Just the other day Discovery had a program on Nike corp, Nike shoes only cost 20-30$ to manufacture but they charge 200-300$ from public. The same quality product could be manufactured for so much less goes to show how they suck the blood from the people.

You are right and wrong in so many different levels, right yes it costs so much cuz people take time to invent a product and manufacture with care, customer support return policies, store locations you know stuff that brings jobs to other people? ya thats why it costs more. If you don't have the money to buy a 2000 dollar jacket by Gucci then don't shop there, there are always places like walmart that sells jackets for 20 bucks too but it was not copied or anything.
If you were a software developer and you worked on it for say 5 years and when you are going to reap the benefits someone is selling your product? the time, effort and money you put in? Same with movie makers, musicians and people.
I do agree some people just make too much money but damn man if you don't like it don't buy it, also don't buy it from a place where the made the cheap imitation either its like eating after someone threw up

I was watching a prgrm in UK where people get to show their innovations and stuff to a panel of very rich entrepreneurs who then decide wheter do they want to fund/take share in the production/profit of the stuff. many had success. one fellow comes up with a device(microwave oven size) to sterlize golf shoes costing about 80 but he wants it to be on the market for 250. dont remember did he get the funds.
These entreprenuers make easy money by not having to develop ideas but just checking wheter it will work. they decide then and there and give the money and earn returns. one candidate was shaana, wanted his financer to market by backing with his name, the entrepnr said no,, another fellow entrepnr took up the offer. many many innovations come up. many like the ones we come up at home.

my friend had a mobile repair shop in gulf, and also as i learnt in UK, Chinese goods are of 3 qualites, one for first world, second for gulf and third for third world countries.
It also depends who is importing it. When i first went to uk i was like , what? chinese goods? this we also get in India. But I learnt that they were top quality.
there were such manufacturing units in Delhi and much acclaimed USA-ulhasnagar, wonder are they still there
India Is no better!!!

Stop chinese counterfeits

China will never stop counterfeiting industry, because it is a political weapon of the Chinese Government. It encourages its manufacturers and traders to sell counterfeit goods in India, undermining the local industries and traders. They produce counterfeits of Indian lifesaving drugs to sell in Africa, destroying the reputation of Indian drug manufacterers. Only way we can fight back is by a movement of individuals. Don’t buy cheap Chinese goods. Advise your friends to shun Chinese goods.

India is not the center of the world for China. Wake up, the chinese are aspiring to be the next superpower and is challenging the US today.
I agree with your first sentence. China will never stop counterfeiting industry, because it is a political weapon of the Chinese Government.

Recently,when I was on holiday in India,one man came to our premises and talked to me in a whispering voice that he wants to sell me some stolen good. I called him to come inside,he was a cloth seller.He said that he is a supplier to some good cloth store but he and some of his friends managed to steal some silk clothes which they want to sell of to recover their daily expenses.He said he is a bengali brahmin guy and therefore he will not cheat me.See a thief telling that he is a brahmin and he will not cheat me!
He showed me a piece of cloth with a length of 5 meters.He said the market price of the cloth is 1200 rs/metre and for 5 meter it is rs 6000.He used one lighter to show me that as it is silk,the cloth is not catching fire.
He was bargaining and last said that he want to sell off at Rs.1000 as they want some money to bear expenses.I took a photo and messaged to my friend who has a cloth shop.My friend said ,please donot get trapped ,that is not silk,it is a synthetic material and will shrink if you use.He said at best you can take for rs 500 if you want to gift some poor people in marriage or some function.
So,I said sorry and sent back the person.
This is the situation.Cheaters are everywhere,this cheating industry is in comparatively in lower standard in India.In China,it is fast and going global.
Atleast China is trying to control it with a iron feast,I really wonder whether without a strong jan lokpal will India be able to do that?
by Ramesh Dodani (View MyPage) on Aug 23, 2011 10:05 AM
dont compare india with china. china is making exporting & locally selling fake goods of international brands openly. this is not the case in india
yr story abt silk fabric smells of casteism - is it necessary to highlight that person cheating is a brahmin ?? wht were u trying to prove ???

Read my sentence .."this cheating industry is in comparatively in lower standard in India"...
By birth,I myself is a brahmin and I married inter-caste as i donot believe in casteism .But this is reality,see how caste is being used to cheat people !You cannot shy away from ground situation...
Tackling the counterfieters

The worlds economy largely depends upon intellectual innovations and creative inventions. These innovations and creative inventions are the Intellectual Property Rights of companies and individuals who spend large amount of money and talents for the benefit of the consumers.
Counterfeiters using cheap talents copy the originals and pass on to the consumers apart from ruining a country's economy. Ultimately it is the consumer who suffer because of these counterfeits. Just imagine, the amount of damage that can be caused by using a dupilicate break shoes in automobiles/ duplicate cigarettes/duplicate consmetics....
The revenue loss on parallel imports affects the nations economy largely. In this globalised corporate world, considering all the facts top global companies should come together to help govt in framing stringent laws and devise methods to tackle the problem.
