You sure about that? Digital Music and CDs are fairly easy to reproduce.
For instance, I can download several MP3s off the net, convert them to a WAV
file then burn them on to a CD-R. For about $1000, one can purchase CD
duplicator, which can reproduce CDs easily. And the booklets can easily be
reproduced with a good color copier. In other words, I or anyone else with
some time can make a seemingly legit CDs for pennies on the dollar.

SM CDs have reproduced silkscreens and color booklets, also in "high
quality." Ever Anime I suspect also dupes silkscreens and color booklets.

In other words, don't trust the legitimacy of CDs from Taiwan--most of the
time, at least.
