So you think Pirating a book ruffles your feathers?

So you think Pirating a book ruffles your feathers? Wait till you read this
http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/04/27/business/nec.php

Folks in China are pirating *whole* a company! This time, NEC gets the brunt! ... but hey, at least they are "developing their own range of consumer electronic products - everything from home entertainment centers to MP3 players" ... maybe if they develop an NEC eink reader, it would be cheaper?

EDIT: You got to hand it to them ... they even "carried NEC business cards, commissioned product research and development in the company's name and signed production and supply orders."
