Default Blue-Ray Disks that rot

Have you ever seen something so irritating than rotting Blue-Ray disks ? Paying $35 for a movie (now available for $22) that is not playable after a few months because of rot ? A user in the AVS forum started a thread showing pictures of the Blue-Ray movie The Prestige that showed dozens of blotches that are apparently underneath the disk surface.
Several other users reported that their disks were showing similar blotches while others said their disks did not have them. Suggestions were that it could be climate related or a coating problem during production on some batches that have been sold.
The thread starter was using a PS3 to play the movie which could be related. There are unfortunately not that many information available at this point but this could be a serious blow for the Blue-Ray supporters if it turned out to be something serious that could happen to all disks.
Do you own a Blue-Ray player and have the movie The Prestige ? How does yours look and which Blue-Ray player do you use ? Click on the images for a larger picture.
