A few dealers in places such as Hong Kong, Canada, and the USA are making bootleg promo
boxes and selling them as legitimate promo box releases from Japan. Record labels and Disk Union
in Japan make the boxes as promotional items. The record labels can make what they want
regarding an artist because they own the rights. Disk Union, a distributor, makes boxes and
other promotional items by asking for and being granted permission to use album artwork
and related artist logos. That is the difference between legitimate and non-legitimate promo
boxes. The non-legitimate boxes are made with stolen artwork, as these bootleggers do not
ask for and have not been granted permission from the record labels or artists. Some of these
bootleg boxes are homemade, some are factory made in China, some pretend to be prototypes,
some pretend to be made in Japan, some claim to be limited, numbered editions. But how or
where they are made makes no difference to the central issue. The artwork is stolen, these
sellers are making money illegally, and buyers on eBay and other marketplaces are being misled
(courtesy by Darius Firethorn, Japan).
