    Henry,
    Re: Counterfeit Electronics
    From an EBN comment:

    I’m surprised that there aren’t any cases that address e-waste. “If the counterfeiters did not have any of the scrap material to use for counterfeiting, ( i.e. if you dried up their supply) then their ability to remove parts, remark them and sell them as new parts would be gone, (or at least curtailed). I believe, as do others, that we would be served best if we did all the scrapping of used, old, unwanted electronic items here in the United States, where the reclamation of the desired materials could be done correctly and under our supervision. We need to stop shipping this unwanted material offshore, and, instead, do the reclamation here.” Are you aware of any such DoD or other government entities proposals addressing this element of the problem?
