Okay, so some companies out there duplicated Jotul products and got sued over it. (Go to GOOGLE and search for "jotul taiwan" to read the lawsuit) That said, why do some of the "purists" here consider the duplicates "Junk"? I was given a Taiwan-made Jotul #4, and I intend on heating my work shop with it. Why would anyone in their right mind dispose of a perfectly good woodstove because it's not a Jotul? Hey, I'm not saying what happened to Jotul is right, but would you throw away a Toyota because it's not a Ford or Chevrolet? What gives?
