But they are not counterfeit as the hardware and software is open source.

Counterfeit boards bear marks that make them look like Arduino.cc-produced boards. (Much like counterfeit watches marked as "Rolex.") People can get tricked into buying boards with a USB, or other chip, that makes them compatible only after they download special drivers, etc. If a company produces an Arduino clone they should mark it as such. They also should note that a given board is compatible with an Arduino XXX, but is a product not of Arduino.cc but of another company. Be careful what you buy and read the specifications carefully. Just my opinion from experiences with Arduino boards.
