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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
