Fake American Psycho DVDs?
According to InterDVD, a number of fake American Psycho DVDs are being sold by reputable companies. It appears that a source in Canada has supplied what initially appear to be legitimate DVD discs to a number of companies - InterDVD included, and that these discs are not the official Univeral release.
The discs are fairly easy to spot - they come in standard cases with NO security seal. There is no barcode and the disc has no label, the case insert is card (only printed on one side), and the studio is listed as Tri-mark and not Universal. These discs are apparently fairly unstable in the picture department with severe skipping being reported.
We advise everyone to keep an eye out, and if you do receive a fake DVD as part of your order contact the distributor in question and ask them to replace it with a legitimate version. Suffice to say, these discs are highly suspect, and very likely pirate copies based on an early DVD master.
Please e-mail me if you have received one of these discs as I'd like to see just how widespread this problem is.
