Verbatim warns about unauthorized supply of DVDs from Laser Corporation Verbatim has issued a warning on its corporate website for Australia and New Zealand about an unauthorized supply of 16X DVD's that use MID codes of Verbatim and related companies. Here is the company's warning...
Verbatim Corporation has concerns regarding the unauthorised supply in Australia by Laser Corporation Holdings Pty Ltd of some Laser brand 16X DVD's which use MID codes of Verbatim or its related companies.
Disk identification shows that these Laser brand 16X DVD's are not from production facilities approved by Verbatim or its related companies and so may be of different quality or performance as disks from production facilities approved by Verbatim or its related companies.

Verbatim is without any responsibility for the quality or performance of these Laser brand 16X DVD's.

In addition, Laser's supply of these 16X DVD's in Australia may infringe copyright.

Verbatim and its related companies reserve their legal rights in respect to the supply in Australia by Laser of these 16X DVD's.

Not sure but I wonder why Ritek didn't do anything like this in the past. Other companies have used their MID code on crap media in an attempt to boost sales.

I wish Ritek would have warned us since I got burned, ignore the pun, on bad media supposedly from them. This is a good move by Verbatim for the consumer and others that might use Laser Corp for manufacturing.

It would be nice if they would tell people what to look for in the fakes but then maybe the average person couldn't tell anyway. Also will they be seeking out the fakes and taking them from the shelves or do they need a court order to do that. This all gets pretty sticky when you're dealing with different countries.
