"Plagiarism" in Other Side

Plagiarism is common word that we use for something have "identical" or really the same. Copy or recognize a work from original source. We usually talk about "plagiarism" around the internet. Like Plagiarism in writing that we usually talk. But now I talk about plagiarism in Industry. With many product was copied and it sold to consumer with higher profit. We can easily found million product was copied around the world. Start from software, DVD, mobile phone, music including "song", electronic equipment.

"plagiarism" in product is kind of profitable business. We get a lot of money from here. This is like a "wet" business. There is no intellectual and creative in this business just "copy and Paste". I realize my country still "trap" with kind of business. I can easily find "copied of DVD", software, another product that really the same with original. But I am not forgive for people who Copied "food product" and not concern with healthy side. Using of excessive chemicals which dangerous for our body and there is no expiration date.

China is developing now. We can easily find product from China. It sold entire the world. This is like "Home Business" in China. We can easily found small industry over there and it worked inside the house. They can do anything by the order. They can create product almost the same with original product. The "home industry " make a spare part and it collected in "big industry".This is a place to assemble the collection of spare parts. Million product from china sold in my country. Start from small things like Toys, mobile phone, Mp3, television, home appliances until motorcycle. Very good in sales, maybe with cheap price. So the people can buy it. With a large difference between the price, consumers tend to choose the cheap price. But don't expect about quality, it far from the original.

This is the fact that people still difficult to "say No" to plagiarism. Because of high demand and they really need those product. Although with the low quality.

This is the real fact that "plagiarism" is still great business to get much money. Sometimes we don't aware that this is the result of "plagiarism". We all return to us as consumers. Let the consumer rate about the quality. If they feel harmed, they will move to the original. What do you think about this topic? Do you have experience using something "not original" or "fake" ? Let's share and discuss together.

Plagiarism is so abundant, that it's very hard to tell the originals from the fake. I agree with you however, due to the high demand of low-cost products, it's very tempting to go for the fake.

This is a complicated problem. I agree with Veronica, as long as market demand is strong for cheap products with good quality, fake product will remain in the market.

If a person is trying to make ends meet they will have no choice but to take the cheaper priced goods. I am not a fan of Wal-Mart because of where most of their products are made but that's because I have the ability to choose. Fake products will always have a place and I don't think big business minds that much. They will generally sell to people who can't afford the real thing.

What is really bad are people that rip off a good idea someone is trying to get off the ground, or if people copy a good article like this one and put it under their own name.

This is so true of many businesses and if you consider that this has been going on for centuries it is kind of hard to even tell where the fine line is that you would cross over to make it plagirism and not plagirism. Great hub!

Thanks for all comment. I think Veronica and Mr.Bbudoyono have the same opinion about "fake" product. Sometimes people never think twice to buy something, like both of you said about high demand influence in selling product. For Pete you peel this case with "education" side. I never knew that Fake products will always have a place in Wal-Mart.For Isabellas we have to make decision right now. And I think we all in the right line.

Thanks for sharing this informative hub.

Here in the Phil., we call these copied products as "pirated." There is high demand on pirated items because they are highly affordable. But, in luxurious cars, I never know that there is such.

prasetio30 7 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

thanks Beth. This is the same problem in my country. and I think because there is no awareness from people to appreciate the original product. It looks form the BIG selling of DVD or VCD. And most of them "fake". We can easily found it.

Yes, prasetio30, plagiarism,piracy and product counterfeiting are typical problems in countries where people need to engage in those things to earn money for their families. Oftentimes, people are not aware they're pirating, or if aware, they aren't principled enough to resist money (businessmen), and not strong enough to choose morals over hunger (hawkers).

Hi, Nera Woods. Thanks for coming to this hub. I am glad you want to share your thought about this topic. I agree with you, at least we have to protect the original source. Although for the purpose to get the profit from the market. Good to see you here. Take care!

Really enjoyed this practical hub that can remind us as to how easily duplicates can be made of some products. Many times we buy items that look almost exactly like the originals to save money. It is what we have to do sometimes. God Bless You, and your wonderful family.

My friend, stars439. Thank you very much for coming to this hub and share your opinion about this topic. The people love affordable price, but sometimes they didn't look the quality. That's why the "duplication products" always growing fast from day by day. Have a good day!
