Disappointed with the price of the brand new Apple iPhone8 and iPhone X? Don’t be. Goophone i8 is here with us launched after the launch of Apple’s iPhone8 with the same features and an affordable price of $100. Let us look further into the specifications of this clone iPhone.
There are always new players in the game of the international trade, who hardly care for patent law and can help those who can’t afford the original ones and sell off for a cheap price. It is doubly vexing for legitimate iPhone owners that the iPhone poseurs pay low monthly fees and own the phones that appear almost identical to the Apple phones. And the price is very minimal.
The arrival of the ‘GooPhones’ brings up many questions like, are these Chinese companies knock off as good as the real thing? Is it legal to own or to import these ‘iPhones’? iPhones are mostly semi-legal.
They became semi-legal with a chaotic nature of an international intellectual property rights law. In the late 80s and 90s, China and the US signed a number of bilateral and international agreements that normally require each nation to respect each other’s intellectual property rights and laws. In other words, US patent possesses validity in China. But in reality, both Chinese and US courts heavily side with their respective domestic companies and them often overriding the validity of the foreign laws. This one falling in the international law opened up the door for the GooPhone.
