    I was checking EBay today for Band of Brothers on DVD and, as I discovered when I did this search a few weeks ago, there were a lot of listings for a region 0 set from Hong Kong. All the listings were pretty cheap, of course, which sounded tempting as I'd really like to pick up this series.

    Now, I realize that a lot of bootlegged stuff comes from HK, and the last thing I want to do is endorse that here, but I'm wondering if pretty much all HK DVDs on EBay are bootlegs, or if some of it is legit. Maybe EBay hasn't taken them down because they are legit product? (Of course, I can't imagine a studio putting out a region 0 DVD set anywhere.)

    Can anyone shed any light on these particular HK DVDs?

    Thanks.

    - Brad

    In my experience, pretty much all non-anime Region 0 DVDs from HK, of Western movies, are boots. There are a few expections, but this is generally the rule.

    Assume ANYTHING from Hong Kong that is not a Hong Kong originating movie that is Region 0 to be a bootleg ESPECIALLY if it's anime or anything out of Hollywood
