No joy for end-user:

"There is no doubt that FTDI have the right to protect their IP and products, but current situation causes way too much damage. As a company they should fight other companies and shady suppliers, instead of retrospectively punishing end users who cannot possibly know origin of each chip used by the product they bought year ago.

We are also worried by potential FTDI's liability for causing intentional damage to products they do not own. Misusing PID/VID is strictly not a crime (you just cannot put USB mark on your device), and we are not sure that all "compatible" chips are abusing FTDI's logo.

Yep, FTDI is causing huge damage to the users. When the fake chip has been detected (with the new FTDI drivers), they set the PID to zero and the device with the fake chip isn't working anymore. You can set the PID with the following tool back into 6001.
  

It is convenient to use older FTDI drivers too.

God damn evil FTDI. Their product is totally overpriced. No wonder, that the fake chip is doing the job cheaper. Much cheaper.
