They can afford to sell for much less because they have no R&D costs to recover. They stole the design and are selling at a huge profit even at their reduced price point. Also, they avoid taxes and safety and environmental regulations which keeps their production cost down.

...plus someone has already done all the marketing and promotion (videos, social media platform exposure, etc.) for them. Judging from how quickly some of the "pirated" products can come to the market, I'm pretty sure there're folks from that part of the world monitoring new product releases in North America on a regular basis.

North America does not hold the patent on innovation of anything, there is a whole other world of innovation beyond its borders. Patents are for huge companies and fools as a rule though Saw Stop with his specialised knowledge showed Bosch the exit door when they thought they could do what they wanted in the US though not elsewhere thankfully.

yea, ?????????



The Bosch ,Saw Stop thing was interesting. They do not use the same technology and the idea of sensing "operator" skin was not unique to Saw stop. Personally I prefer the Bosch Tech. In this case neither work for situation. Patents are defiantly a minefield of problems.
