Lately, counterfeit MSI products are being sold as original. However, it is not something new and there is a high growth of counterfeit products on different platforms. MSI has posted the following statement clearing its stand on the issue.
Dear Beloved MSI gamers,
We would like to thank you for your long-term support and patronage. It is each and every one of you who has made MSI a world leading gaming brand. Unfortunately, we recently found that the pirated version of MSI’s gaming products and counterfeit products with the MSI logo or mascot were sold on the market. MSI has intellectual property rights to its products, mascots or trademarks that are self-developed, produced and sold. To ensure the rights of all gamers, MSI would like to remind you that:
Your rights can only be warranted when you purchase genuine products or acquire giveaways from MSI authorized distributors, agents and e-retailers as well as events organized by MSI. Products purchased or acquired from channels other than those mentioned above are likely to be low-quality counterfeits. If you are one of the gamers who love and support MSI, we would like to urge you to exercise caution against it.
Moreover, MSI’s legal department has taken necessary legal actions to prevent such counterfeits from entering the market and damaging gamers’ rights.
Finally, we would like to thank you, our gamers, for your long-term patronage of MSI.
