Piracy Chic

I found this DVD discarded on the side of the road on my morning walk.  I think it might be one of the casualties of Sony's rather peculiar decision to make the official movie DVD look like a pirated copy.

People may choose to pirate, they may like to pirate, but one thing is for sure--pirated copies are assigned less value than "real" ones.

Purchasers and renters have been returning copies thinking they were being short-changed with an unlicensed copy.  So that RedBox and others have had to add explanations about the disc's unconventional appearance on their listings.
