    Please be advised that counterfeit AzBox Premium HD Plus units are now being manufactured by several companies in China. These companies include but are not limited to:

    Shenzhen Manruta Technology Co., Ltd., Shenzhen, Guandong, China
    http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/593696188/NEW_Azbox_Premium_HD_Plus_latest.html

    Shenzhen Hua Gang Electronics Co., Ltd., Shenzhen, Guandong, China

    As genuine AzBox Premium HD Plus units were manufactured in Korea, all the above companies from China are producing AzBox clones. Shortly after these companies began producing counterfeit AzBox units, the following unauthorised AzBox retailers began to appear in the Canadian market.

    Please note that we are currently analysing AzBox counterfeit products sold by unauthorised retailers in collaboration with OpenSat Lda. and all subsequent firmware releases will include code in order to permanently disable these devices. Also, our newest AzBox products such as the AzBox miniMe are manufactured with a proprietary security dongle installed inside the unit which makes it impossible to counterfeit.

    In order to avoid purchasing a counterfeit AzBox unit, we strongly recommend only purchasing AzBox products from authorised AzBox Canada dealers which are listed on our website at http://dealers.azbox.ca or from Rick's Satellite who is authorised for the U.S. market.

    AzBox Canada remains committed in protecting the AzBox brand in the Canadian market by taking several measures up to and including legal action in collaboration with OpenSat Lda. against unauthorised usage of its AzBox trademark and preventing the sale of counterfeit units in the Canadian marketplace.

    If you accidentally purchased an AzBox product from any unauthorised retailer listed above, please contact us and we will assist you in going after the unauthorised seller to try and get your money back!

    "and all subsequent firmware releases will include code in order to permanently disable these devices"

    Sincerely hope you don't disable legitimate products as some makers have done in the past.

    I've never understood punishing the consumer for buying something. Go after the people selling them, YOU the manufacturer should know who is selling them legitimately and who isn't. Go after them. It is not our job as consumers to figure out what is or isn't a clone and who is or isn't illegitimately selling them. in fact why can't you buy from many manufacturers, Az included. Have to buy from someone else, who is an "authorized dealer". Who is one and who isn't. they don't update their sites very often etc. etc. Someone will sue them one day and win.

    Good point, mountaineer. Why punish the consumer when the manufacturer claims to know who is making the clones. Go after the ones who are producing the illegitimate boxes. A few years ago I bought two boxes from a reputable dealer and they turned out to be clones. It was traced back to neat little scam but he was not in on it and was also a victim. As far as code that will disable these clones, I had a provider dish destroyed back when piracy was in full force and Bell TV issued an ECM. My legitimate sub box was fried and their response was, oh well. Haven't had a sub since. I still say it should be up to the manufacturers to go after to clone makers. hy not notify the feds and have the shipments stopped when they arrive in North America?
