Default Label on Windows XP Home cd.....

I just ordered a Windows XP Home Edition w/SP2, and I was wondering if the label on the cdwas suppose to be holographic or silver shine. Because the box looked tainted and I thought the cd label on the cd wasn't legit. I thought it would be a green label similar to the appearance of the box it came in.

Yeah, the holographic is confirmation that it's legit. Do you think pirates would go out of their way to make a holographic version of the CD cover, if legit ones were green and easy to copy?
