If you have good eyes, a good monitor, and look closely you can see where the Woodpeckers logo was removed on some of the photos.
Then, there are some where they didn't bother to even remove it, such as the following link, where if you hover over the last photo you can plainly see "Woodpeckers" on it. https://smile.amazon.com/Woodworking-Po ... 00&sr=8-57
The pictures are now removed from the Amazon ad. Using others pictures is becoming very common on the internet. I know one YouTube provider has had his pictures used over and over by others without his permission.
As far a China reverse engineering and producing the identical product for much less is nothing new. In fact many US manufactures have just quiesced to this and now have their products manufactured for them by China.
I am not defending China but some of these products are so wildly over priced
that the actual manufacturing cost is many times lower than the product is selling for. So the ability of some company being able to produce an identical product and sell it for much less is no mystery.
