Default Re: The worst ripoff guy on the PLANET

There are many people in the world who think that intellectual property rights is bull&h!t. If they see something that is simple to produce and can wield large profits, they will copy it and mass produce it. The good thing about this is that the price comes down and there is plenty of supply to meet demand.
Take the chinese engine kits for example. Some factories in china produce the engine kits even though they didn't think up the engine design. They copied and improved upon somebody else's design (although some not so much improvement, but you get the idea). In the past three years since I bought my chinese engine kit on ebay for $250, the price has dropped more than 40% on average to about $140 shipped.
In the end, it does more good than bad. Although it might sound harsh for the first guy, it's how the free market works.
