Fake Tablets Flood Market

The success of Apple Inc.’s iPad is attracting thousands of counterfeit and knockoff products. On a single day in July, almost 18,000 fakes and clones resembling the iPad and Android devices were available for sale on 23 e-commerce sites, according to MarkMonitor Inc., a firm that helps companies protect their brands.

The copycat products and suspected counterfeits found in MarkMonitor’s survey were offered by more than 5,000 sellers, many of them located in China. To avoid getting cheated with counterfeit tablets, which of course most likely have not passed U.S. or EU EMC or safety standards, shoppers should stick with retail sites they know, experts say.
