Dangers Of Buying A Pirated DVD Online

Aug 21, 2008
One of the problems the filmmakers are facing is the rapid spread of pirated DVD and CD market. Thus it has become imperative to be cautious about the danger of producing, buying or using pirated products. Suppose you have bought a good looking, nice packed DVD, and when you come back home with it you find something disturbing. The cover, which is printed on the face of the DVD, is a cheap, ordinary looking one. Then you can be certain that the picture would be sub-standard and unclear.

Distributors generally would make good quality DVD cases for the packaging whereas a pirated DVD would be put in an ordinary DVD case.

All the DVDs are based on region codes. Most often the pirated DVDs contain non-existent codes which can be easily identified. You can play the supposedly region 1 DVD on any Region 4 player.

Another important problem you would witness is that the cover would not match the title and content of the DVD. The fonts used most of the time are blurry and are full of typographical errors. The original DVD should contain the DVD image that was given in the ad. Pirated DVDs seldom follow this and will have any picture on it.

One of the problems that the online sellers face is the selling of pirated DVDs through major online selling sites. The sites, which host the web selling, often do not have too much control over the merchandise. This leads to customer dissatisfaction over the sold product.

There are some precautions you can take while buying a DVD to check its originality. Find out the photos of the original DVD on the net. You can find it in other places also and can request it from the distributors or the reseller. If the reseller is genuine, then he can provide you with snapshots taken from different angles.

Do not forget to check the feedback of the seller from other customers. There might be a negative comment written on him. Some people have the habit of making comments before they go through the process of investigating the whole truth. Read the comments carefully as there might be some useful information shared in the small space.

Some sellers are there who try to make quick bucks by selling both original and pirated DVDs. They just mix the content and sell to unsuspecting consumers. As it is online, most customers do not take the pain to send the DVD back to the seller and ask for a refund.

Pirates, nowadays, have a full arsenal for creating pirated DVDs. They even have a factory to put a stamp on their own DVD and seal it. Most of the time, the seals are imitations of the original factory seal. This easily fools the buyer.

However, the reputed sellers do not indulge in any of these practices and you can rest assured that the product offered by them is 100% genuine.
