Countries Where Fakes May Originate

While most of the counterfeit tech coming to the U.S. originates in China, many other countries share part of the blame, according to a U.S. Department of Commerce report released in January. The data examines where fake tech parts are believed to originate and is based on interviews with distributors that work with the industrial and defense sectors. The following slide show highlights the top 10 sources of counterfeit tech, according to the report. It includes examples of fabricated products that originate in those countries, as outlined in published reports.
