Cathe Friedrich DVD Counterfeit Form
How to determine if a DVD is legitimate.
We use three replicators, with most of our newer DVDs being replicated by SONY. Here are some steps that can help you determine if a DVD is counterfeit:
If your Cathe DVD was replicated by SonyDADC (i.e., all STS DVDs, 4-Day Split DVD, Body Max 2, Drill Max, Butts & Guts, Low Impact Circuit and many more DVDs you will see a Product Code Number (PCN) on the back (non label side) of the DVD followed by a barcode:
The PCN number will begin with DVSS or DVDL (this is the main code you want to look for. These codes are SonyDADC specific and hard to duplicate. DVSS means single layered disc while DVDL means the discs are dual layered. If your DVD has these codes it means it is probably legitimate.
The IFPI code you see is a mold# specific, it can be traced to a specific molding machine. The IFPI code unfortunately can be pirated if the replicator has a copy of the original DVD. IFPI codes are not a good indication if a DVD is counterfeit or real.
If your Cathe DVD was replicated by one of our other two replicators the PCN code you should look for on the non-label side of your disc will start with either:
Poor artwork is another way to recognize if a DVD is a fake. Unfortunately, Bootleggers can do a pretty good job sometimes of copying artwork and without a real copy to compare, you probably wouldn’t know if a DVD is fake.
