    Aren't most of the knock offs from the countries that the USSR gave the plans to?

    That is the point of patents anyway, to give limited control so everyone can benefit. If they are so easy to make then the problem is they aren't making them in a way that makes a profit, such as promoting them as the original, authentic or more reliable than their competitors.

    Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.

      Even the AK-47, arguably the most widely used instrument of genocide and mass murder in the history of the world can't survive in todays global economy. :)

        I don't see any problem in others reproducing the design. But I think it's fraudulent for them to use the name, since that implies that it's manufactured by the original company, or under license from it. It's essentially identity theft, using the reputation of another to sell your product. If you sell crap, you impugn the reputation of the legitimate holder of the brand, and you cripple the ability of customers to identify which manufacturers are reliable.
