Don't know if this means anything or not, and I'm definitely not trying to discredit this guy, but wasn't 2000 the year that had the big piracy issues with the VCDs? I waited and got the official set from David Lei (the official US distributor that year) when they finally came out late 2001 and the set I got doesn't look like the set this guy's selling.

My set only has 2 discs and the cover pic is different.

Like I said though don't know what that means, if anything at all. Just thought it was worth mentioning.

Hi,

Thanks for the interesting sites.

Yes, the 2000 Genting being offered is from the infamous copy made from the stolen master copy. It is however, not technically a 'pirated' copy as they did not copy a legit disk, but instead produced one themselves form the stolen unedited master.

The 1998 one is a pirated copy, they change the cover & vcd pics. The legit's pic is the one printed on the vcd cover but in full colour.

The 2002 Wold champs semi-final(Tang Lung cup) looks legit but I have never seen the 2nd box cover though.

The 2002 Wold champs Final(Tang Lung cup) however, looks dodgy as not only the cover pics are different(the cd cover has a additional 'live' lion added to it) but my copy has only 4 disc.

Now, what is interesting is the 1994 video & 1996 vcd as there were no official commercial video/vcds for those years. I have seen amateur recordings of both though. The genting logo on the top of the 1994 video is actually the 2000 genting logo. So, these also may not be technically pirated vcd/videos either. Infact they may be quite rare recordings(esp. the 1994 one) though if they are the ones I saw then the quality will be very much lacking.

I can't remember about the Singapore one & no info yet on the 2004 vcds, but it seems that only one of them is legit but I will update once I have more.

I do not think these people selling this vcds are out to cheat others but rather, as most people in Asia are, just do not care about legitimacy of intellectual rights. Funny thing is that why these pirates do not just copy the pics total which will make them harder to spot & less effort on them, some of them are just so cheesy! (esp the 1998 & 1996 ones)However, looking at the bright side, the existance of all this piracy means that there are money to be made in LD vcds!

from my knowledge, genting 04, tang long prelims/finals, and singapore 02 are the only ones that are legit, the others are knockoffs of the real ones...just from what i know, this may not be 100% accurate
