How might we use piracy as a tool for the redistribution of power between designers and consumers.

 

When piracy was a mainstream phenomenon in China’s cellphone industry in the 2000s century, usually piracy company will make modification to the original design to compete with them.


Some of those designs appeared during that time may look crazy, but some of the features do end up in today’s  cellphone, for example apple now support dual sim card, but the idea comes from those crazy cellphone design.

Can we use piracy as way to critique current design? Can customers use piracy as a channel to express their point of view?
