OK I've found another Tama fakie, or ripoff. Here it is....

It's a weird one, I've never seen it in my entire life although it kinda looks like a Dinkie Dino ripoff. Any thoughts on what this might be!?!

It's not a fake or rip off, it is a different pet altogether, a Tamakaci Dino. (I think that's how it's spelled.)

 

Please remember that 'fakes' are ones that look almost exactly like a certain virtual pet, and are marketed as such, but have different programming. An example would be a pet that has a Tamagotchi shell, says Tamagotchi on the package, but doesn't have the Bandai logo and is a completely different pet in the programming. V4s are common as fakes.

Just because it's not a Tamagotchi it doesn't mean you should give a warning :P Its pretty common actually and people bid on it so I think its not a bad copy or anything

I don't like how the name of the pet has "Tama" in it though...obviously derived from "Tamagotchi". :rolleyes:

Some pets have "tama" and some have "gotchi" however there's no copyright on just one part of the name. As stated on the Wiki:

 

The name "Tamagotchi" officially comes from the words "tamago", which means "egg", and the English word "watch"

A common but incorrect theory is that "tamago", and "tomodachi", which means "friend", or a combination of "tamago" and "chi" which translates to "cute" or "lovable".

 

Other pets share a similar name, like Tamakaci, Petogotchi, Tamagochan, etc. If it's a different pet and the name is changed enough, it doesn't violate copyright. But I'm sure a majority of people know what a Tamagotchi is based on appearance, versus an odd pet.
