Goophone factory visit

Goophone (simplified Chinese: 谷峰; traditional Chinese: 穀峯; pinyin: gǔ fēng; literally: "valley peak") is a manufacturer of smartphones, tablets and smart watches based in Shenzhen, China. The company earned notoriety for releasing counterfeit clones of popular high-end smartphones such as the iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy S series using off-the-shelf system-on-chips from MediaTek and the Android operating system, often with user interfaces made to resemble the devices they imitate.

Patent rights controversy

In 2012, Goophone was reported to have filed a patent application for the Goophone i5, a clone of Apple's iPhone 5, prior to the latter device's release. The company even went so far as to threatening legal action against Apple. Law professor Robin Feldman at UC Hastings expressed concern over China's patent policy to which he stated that it "allows this type of behavior" in an email interview.
