I bought a used Sony DVD player from Goodwill last week. It didn't come with a remote so I hopped on ebay and grabbed one. I was laughing my ass off today when the remote showed up in the mail box. It's COUNTERFEIT! It never occurred to me when I purchased it that anybody would counterfeit a remote control for a 20-year-old DVD player. It looks and feels like something from the dollar store but, so far, it seems to function properly.
