Edit your post before a mod gets to you.i dont care about knock offs, they are usually cheaper and shengshou for example are a knock off of vcube but guess what... they are better... therefore i never buy vcubes and only buy shengshou. also the new moyu 4x4 is a almost exact x cube 4 knock off and i buy it because it is cheaper and is more availible than x cube, i really dont give a shlt
V-Cube 4 better than Shengshou imo.i dont care about knock offs, they are usually cheaper and shengshou for example are a knock off of vcube but guess what... they are better... therefore i never buy vcubes and only buy shengshou. also the new moyu 4x4 is a almost exact x cube 4 knock off and i buy it because it is cheaper and is more availible than x cube, i really dont give a shlt
Meffert has reacted think about the Lan-Lan gear cube situation. Also I remember a while back They sent out a news letter telling us to report any Fake gear cubes.The only companies I have seen react to knock-offs have been Rubik's and V-cube. The problem is that until they make a product better than the knock off puzzles very few people will buy their cubes. I think the reason Meffert does not seem to care is that they do not make their money off of the puzzles being knocked off but rather off of new ideas such as the gear skewb and other non official puzzles that people like to buy.
1) you can't say no offense and say something completely offensive it doesn't really make sense at all Chinese companies copy products because the patents and the patent laws in China are different from the ones hereThe other day my friend showed me this knockoff gear shift from this company called Lin Hui Toys. It was like 10 dollars but then the quality was trash. From my past experience Mefferts' knockoff puzzles were slow, had a cheap feeling and broke easier.
(No Offence Intended), but Chinese people copy so much ideas and copyright them. My dad's friend invented this type of skateboard and thousands of Chinese companies saw the idea and sold them using all sorts of different names. As a conclusion my dad's friend became almost bankrupt and relied on financial support from the government.
But Shengshou, Moyu, Fangshi etc copy their designs, but then they improve it using different types of hardware, pieces, etc. And then Rubik's and V-Cubes just sue them, and almost never even tries to make better designs.
