Q: How long before we see counterfeit Telsas?

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-reportedly-made-deal-open-175847859...

 

 

Can Telsa be so stupid to see BMW, / RangeRover cars ripped of and copied and know China is desperately trying to replicate their patented technology to think the same won't happen to them and then they'll be targeted by the CCP after Glee starts making their own line of luxury ecars

I read somewhere that having a brand that is stolen and copied can actually be great for business.

 

Not quite sure how that works but I suppose that if everyone is trying to look cool wearing knockoff Nike shoes for example, the guy that can brag that his are real has that much more face than the knockoff wearing mofos, and that is where Nike gets their free advertising from. If it's worth pirating then it must be of value to the masses, and while the masses with no money wear the knockoffs they create the market for the real thing. It's free advertising and builds the brand image.

It's 'TESLA', meiyou 'telsas'.

 

Co. is named by Nikolai Tesla, Croat /Serbian inventor .... see Yahoo-gle for more.

 

J. Leno: 'How many US States can you name out of your head, you big-tits-Telsa?'

 

In Chinese, English word 'copy' doesn't have the same meaning as in English. In Chinese, 'copy' means '(let see if) I can do better than you ...' 

 

Did you know, Chinese understand and interpret English different than Native English speakers?

I know you love China Uncensored, so maybe you saw their story on P.R.Chinese arms sales to the developing world and how those knock-offs are substandard. If so, Tesla has nothing to fear from cost-cutting, short-term profit oriented mainlanders.

I think the Tesla storage tech in OZ is more interesting than Tesla cars.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
