Check out the clip of the reporter interviewing Pete Perkins from the aptly name 'Honda Computers' who is an early pioneer of pirate hardware! He creates and sell's copies of Apples.... this was obviously filmed in a time before people cared about trademarks and patents!
He makes a fair point though, his machines are more than just copies. They are an improvment on the original allowing you to connect other homebrew hardware to them.... plus the fact that they were nearly half the price of their lesser-abled official version
