@Stoneshop: In what way are buyers of counterfeit chips FTDI's customers?

Because widget manufacturers will not even know whether they are buying counterfeit chips or not. They buy components like you buy petrol, through a chain of middlemen. Do you know which country the petrol in your car came from?
