Counterfeit optical disks hit the UK channel

E-net Distribution is warning UK resellers and end-users of the first emergence of a black market in counterfeit writable CDs and DVDs.

The Edinburgh-based distie is warning dealers to look out for “seriously substandard products” with suspect packaging. Users should look for discs with “visible imperfections on the writing surface” and reduced storage capacity. E-net found the discs after routine checks with customers.

Susana Garcia, international sales manager at E-net, said: “Never before have we experienced organised counterfeiting to this extent within our industry...The implications are potentially devastating both in terms of quality of product for the end user and the financial impact this will have at every stage of the distribution process.”

The firm is offering a £100,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for making the dodgy disks.
