I got thinking about this a while back after posting in a thread about bootlegs, then thought about it again after reading the most recent thread on DVD's on Ebay. A lady I used to work with was buying DVD's from one of her mother's friends for $10 apiece. Basically, it turned out that most of these were homemade bootlegs of very low quality (burned from a videotape taken in the theater). However, a large number of them were genuine, official DVD's; the only thing is, they had a small hole drilled in the upper left-hand corner of the case. I forget which one, but one of the DVD's I picked up used was drilled in the same way. Does anyone know what's up with this? I didn't think much of it when I bought one that way, but after seeing all the ones my former coworker brought in, I'm guessing it's similar to paperbacks with the cover ripped off (in other words, unsold copies that the retailer is returning to the distributor for a credit).
