Also posted this on cdfreaks but let me put the info over here as well.
MCC hardly manufactures media themselves. (only singapore and japan (small ))
However they licens there technology to third parties (and they are makeing huge profit on this one !) like MBIL,CMC, Prodisc.
In return these compannies might manufacture for MCC brands to pay a part of the money for the licenses.
Note that there are quality rules when it comes to the use of this license.
Now I hope that I cleared that one up.
Just take info as is or if people want some proof do some searches at MCC sites.
