The article shows to have quite some incorrect information.
The question of 3A who allready has reacted back is questionable.
There is a lot of info actually proven 3A's statement that they don't use illegal codes.
Why not take a plasmon code (who is the current supplier of 3A production technology) directly from plasmon but actually go all the way to do joint R&D to get a even better product but with a own extra mid. Extra mid means for a small manufacturer even less support. Explain that one ??
But there is more wrong. They put anwell up which shows that they don't know what/who anwell is.
You can't put anwell as fake TY manufacturers since Anwell doesn't make media themselves they only supply technology.
Now I know that 85% of the Hongkong customers who have used anwell in the past have in some way abused some codes but still Anwell
themselves hasn't. produced any fake TY disc.
They didn't even look at anwell site since what you can see is that they only make production equipement not disc's.
MBIL doesn't make any Verbatim DVD media these days. They only made some 4x media. MBIL does make some cd-r's still for verbatim !
Prodisc however is not mentioned. Mitsubishi doesn't produce anything themselves in china.
ANd then we have the fact that Infosmart and other HongKong compannies just as well abuses the +R code of Taiyo Yuden while the title suggests that fake id's are only a problem for -R media. (Was this one sponsored by the +RW Alliance ?
In other words befor starting to blaime compannies I would have expected a bit more research befor makeing false claims and putting inorrect/incomplete info up.
Oh and one other thing 90% of the stuff we see in Europe seems to come from Infosmart (Hyundai. BUDGET and quite some others )
I forwarded the same info to cdrw.org so let's hope they fix the article.
