HOW TO SPOT FAKE DVDs

How to Spot Fake DVDs
With unauthorized copies of movies and other media being sold around the world, you may be wondering whether that DVD is a counterfeit. If you are shopping from a street market or online seller, here is how to check for authenticity.

Part One of Three:
Basic Signs of Lack of Authenticity

1
Research the movie that you want to buy. Find out how many versions have been officially released, the special features of the movie and which regions the movie is encoded for. This will allow you to spot a fake easily when you are shopping, and it will also give you a better sense of which deals are too good to be true.
For example, genuine Disney DVD’s are rarely “Region 0”, “playable in all regions” or “region 1 compatible”. If you spot a Disney DVD advertising any of these things, you will know that the DVD is possibly fake.

2
Look carefully at the cover. The cover design should be the same as those for the same movie being sold through a reliable outlet (such as a large retail store), but be sure to compare it with a DVD from the same region; for example, a genuine imported version of Disney’s Lion King DVD will probably be single-disc; however, the US or UK version will probably be two-disc, being single-disc does not automatically make it a copy (look for a Disney hologram). Variations in the cover design should make you suspicious because a different cover was possibly printed for pirated copies. If you see any words spelled incorrectly, it is a dead giveaway. Another thing to look for is image quality. Gritty images, matte paper and dull colors indicate that the cover was probably photocopied. The UPC on the back of the DVD case should only be black. If additional ink colors can be seen overlaid over the black in the UPC, or if the lines in the UPC are indistinct because of the bar code’s image being re-processed with a halftone screen over it, then it is most likely that the DVD case has been copied.
If you are thinking about ordering a DVD that does not come with a cover (most often advertised as being a former rental), do not think about it.

The absence of security seals and plastic wraps should also warrant suspicion.

The advertisement of DVD-9 is often thought to be associated with fake DVD’s because many official studio releases never advertise this distinction; it is counterfeit distributors who specify it in relation to quality to differentiate their products from lower-quality DVD-5 counterfeits. In general, any advertisement of “quality” is a red flag, as original releases rarely mention it. The exception here is some genuine Thai DVDs that do mention DVD-9 if they are also released as DVD-5 (DVD-9 is dual layer and as such often has more extra features).
Part Two of Three:
Assessing the Quality
1
Examine the actual DVD if you have already bought it. Chances are that you have played it and the quality is questionable enough for you to be reading this article to make sure. Some additional questions to ask are:
Can you see through the DVD? If you can see through it very well, it is most likely not authentic, though this is not always the case.
Is it colorful (blue, gold, purple, etc.; instead of silver)? If it is any of the colors listed above, it is most likely not a mass-produced DVD.
Hold the DVD up to the light and tilt it to one side. You may be able to see a well-known manufacturer’s name, such as Maxell. If the disc has such a name, then the DVD was a burnable disc, and the disc’s contents are counterfeit.
Check the cover. Real movies have high-quality manufacturer photos, and often fake ones have blurry, lack of color, and less detail type covers. This will tell you that the cover probably was taken with a camera.
If the movie is without security labels, the movie may be a counterfeit.
2
Put the DVD into your DVD drive. In Windows, click on My Computer, then click your player’s drive. It will give you the size of the disc. There should be close to 5 GB used on a single layer or more on a double layer (but this varies depending on running time). Then go through Windows Explorer and right click on various files stored on the DVD to check properties. Look for the creation date. If the DVD is out of print, for example, and the date is recent, something is not right. However, this will probably not work with Disney imported DVD’s with copy protection and results may be misleading.
3
If the spine of the DVD is very thin, and the case is opaque, it is probably fake.
4
If random messages show up about how bootlegs are illegal, or the colors are distorted, these are messages that the average camera can pick up.
5
Look for copy protection. All DVDs are “copy protected” due to copyright laws. Thus, checking the DVD for copy protection method might work, as bootlegs usually don’t have copy protection. If you have a recent DVD try making a copy and if it in fact gets copied, then it’s a bootleg. If it does not work due to copy protection, it might be a good sign.
Insert DVD movie.
Open a program used to copying CD/DVD.
Try to make a copy. Then you will be able to determine if it’s a copy.
Part Three of Three:
Requesting a Refund
1
Go back to the manufacturer or store that sold you the DVD. Tell them you have a counterfeit.
2
Complain to the seller. If it is a store or a business, contact them for a refund. If they refuse, file a report with the Better Business Bureau or your country’s equivalent. If it is a street vendor, report them to your local authorities. And if it is an online seller, such as at an auction site, report them to the coordinating party and leave negative feedback. You can also report a seller of counterfeits to the studio’s anti-piracy department.

Community Q&A
Some of us “sellers” on eBay are victims of distributors of bootlegs, unaware we are selling them. Should we have a chance to clarify and refund to our victims/buyers of the scam without being reported as scammers? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
Exactly what I was thinking. Some bootlegs could be well done enough that even an experienced seller wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. If it’s sealed it would be even harder and you can’t kill the value on a new item by opening each one on the slight chance it might be a bootleg. If this does happen to you as a buyer, just ask for a return/refund and I’m sure any reasonable seller would understand. Don’t just leave negative feedback and potentially ruin someone’s business over one oversight.
I purchased a DVD at a video store but the disc has no picture on the front. What should I do? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
That does not automatically mean it is a counterfeit. Instead, look at the color of the CD. Like mentioned above, counterfeits have a CD that is discolored/not silver.
Is my DVD automatically a fake if I can skip through the anti-piracy warnings? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
Not automatically, but look out for other tell-tale signs because usually the warnings aren’t skippable.
If a barcode is the same but blurred, is it fake? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
That is most likely a result of wear and tear. If everything else is fine, it should be real.
What should I look for in a UK Disney DVD? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
Look for a Disney hologram symbol on the spine of the case. If your UK Disney DVD doesn’t have it, then it’s a fake.
Will the rainbow colors still be visible when I hold the disc up to light if the disc is fake? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
Yes. All discs (except Blu-ray) should display rainbow colors, even if it is a copy.
Could my DVD be a fake if it is a plain disk with the title and has poor quality for viewing? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
It could, or it could be a very old movie. Or maybe the signal is off. If something is wrong with the TV or the disc is scratched, it will be hard to watch.
If a a Blu-Ray has no age certificate on the cover or disc, is it a counterfeit? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
No, it could be an American import. Check the back of the Blu-Ray, at the bottom there should be a rating, like, U, PG, PG-13, R or NC-17. If it has one of these, it is an American import and not a counterfeit.
Tips
Dodgy products and dodgy people go together, it is unlikely that any vendor on a street corner will be selling a new genuine DVD for half the going price, a very good indicator of a website selling counterfeit is that the site will have been made in a hurry and will have missed things like a proper terms and conditions page, and will almost always have lots of spelling mistakes (or context errors as a spell checker may have been used).
If you do purchase a counterfeit DVD from a major online auction, you could report it to the FBI if you live in the USA: it is a federal case, not a local one.
Most counterfeits tend to come from Asia. If you are considering purchasing from an auction and the seller is shipped from Asia, be wary. Look to see what else they are selling and eye the descriptions very carefully. It should be noted though that many vendors from Asia do sell genuine DVDs and it would be unfair (and also possibly illegal) to discriminate against sellers based upon geographic location alone.
If you play the DVD and it has nothing on it, it is an obvious fake.
Look for spelling errors. Most counterfeit movies spell words incorrectly, and information may be missing.
Warnings
There’s always going to be the risk of getting scammed when dealing with disreputable sellers; buy carefully.
Street vendors may not be too pleased, or may not even be there next time, if you are trying to get a refund.

HOW TO BE A GOOD FACE PAINTER

How to Be a Good Face Painter
Face painting is a fun attraction which is present at a variety of parties and kids events. Most often, it’s an activity that’s offered at carnivals, fairs or birthday parties. If you’ve got the aptitude for basic painting skills, and are going to have a celebration for children, then face painting is a great skill to have.

Method One of Three:
Paints

1
Get the right paints.
There are craft paints and alternative non-toxic paints that are on the market. Though these paints are nice for a variety of various crafting projects, they’re not the right paints for face painting.
Get paint developed specifically for this sort of application.
This type of paint is called cosmetic paint and can be easily purchased online or at most craft stores.

2
When starting out, get a variety of common colours (you can begin mixing them for exotic colours later). For now, get used to painting with them. Try them on paper first, or on any medium you would like.

3
Store the paints in a cool, dry area out of the sun to prevent the paints from drying out.
Method Two of Three:
Sponges and Brushes

1
In order to use the face paint, you need to purchase the right applicators.
These include sponges and brushes in exceedingly different shapes and sizes.
There are sponges obtainable that were specifically created with the aim of face painting. You can also use the soft side of the common ones you buy in the shop for this purpose
Purchase the brushes and sponges online or at craft stores in advance so you can get a feel of using them.
Method Three of Three:
Face painting Designs

1
You can easily find designs for face painting online.

2
Get an idea for face painting by watching videos online or better still, watching a professional do it. You can go to a carnival and quietly observe so you can get an idea of how to do it.

3
Find a friend who has done face painting before and ask for their advice and opinions.

Community Q&A
What kind of things are okay to paint for kids under 12?

Answered by Stephanie Hughes
Most painters won’t paint kids under three for skin sensitivity reasons, and will do a patch test on those who have never been painted. If you are using glitter, look for cosmetic glitter, avoiding craft glitter at all costs. The five main designs are a butterfly, pirate, crown, Spiderman, tiger and dog.
What is the term used below “swishing” mean? Sorry if this sound stupid to you but I am a beginner Answered by wikiHow Contributor
It would be like a pre-session to get the bulk of the color off before using the second cup and actually getting the brush clean. It will save your second cup from getting as muddy.
How to do Voldemort face paint? Answered by wikiHow Contributor
You will need latex to make your nose look flat and white face paint to look pale.
Tips
Make sure your area is neat and organized! Have one cup for “swishing” and one that remains as clear as possible to rinse after. Use whatever is needed to have a quick set up and break-down.
Make small talk with the clients, but don’t talk so much that you become annoying.
Bring along a friend to make it more fun. If there’s a lot of downtime, having a friend around can help you from getting bored. You’ll have to split the profits with him/her though, so don’t bring someone if you don’t think it’s necessary.
Make sure you don’t have a lot of paint on your brush, or else it may smudge.
Add Bedazzler gems, as they are self adhesive and are cheaper than face paint branded gems, but just as good. Glitter is great too, but only cosmetic- never craft glitter as it is made of tiny metal foil squares that can damage eyes.
Be sure to let paint dry a bit before adding another coat.
Be friendly and inviting! Smiling never hurts anyone!
Warnings
Be careful mixing black with other colours, for it will smudge easily.
Only use FDA approved paints.
Don’t let any younger kids touch the equipment.
Things You’ll Need
FDA-approved face paint (e.g. Snazaroo, Mehron, Grimas… etc.)
Applicators (Brushes and Sponges)

HOW TO REDUCE ENTERTAINMENT EXPENSES

How to Reduce Entertainment Expenses
Spending money on movies, TV, and special events can cost you a surprising amount over time. The average family spends around thousands per year on entertainment, a number that can be greatly reduced by budgeting.[1] Whether you’re trying to budget at home or while traveling, you can reduce your entertainment expenses if you know where to cut back. Keep track of your budgeting and compare one month from another to see how your spending habits change.

Method One of Three:
Budgeting At-Home Entertainment Expenses

1
Purchase a cable alternative. The first step to reducing at-home entertainment costs is ditching cable TV. Instead, choose an online streaming service. Subscribing to one of these companies can give you access to hundreds of movies, TV, and original content for usually lower cost per month. Review your most recent cable bills and find a streaming service with a lower monthly fee.[2]
Popular video streaming services include: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Acorn TV.[3]
If you’re attached to a certain channel, look for a service that allows you to stream specific channels online (like Sling TV, CBS All Access, HBO Now, or Select TV).

2
Listen to music via streaming services. Instead of purchasing every song you listen to, try a music streaming service. Most services operate as an online library filled with songs that users can hear without downloading. Although these services often have an ad-free subscription for a low cost, many also offer free options.[4]
Try well-known streaming services like: Pandora, Apple Music, Spotify, Slacker, and iHeartRadio.[5]
Test out a free trial before purchasing a subscription.

3
Acquire a library card. Whether you’re a bookworm or a casual reader, a library card can save you hundreds on at-home entertainment. Books (paper, audio, or electronic), movies, magazines, newspapers, and music are all available for free or a minimal annual fee. Some libraries even rent out video games or hobby supplies (like cooking tools or board games).[6]
Libraries also offer free community events like children’s read-alongs, book clubs, personal development workshops, or holiday celebrations.
4
Rent video games instead of buying them. You don’t have to shell out your paycheck to get the latest game release; opt for a game rental service to play at a reduced cost. This option is especially ideal if you tend not to replay games and want to avoid reselling for less than the game is worth.[7]
Some services (like Redbox) offer games for a minimal daily fee while others (like Gamefly) operate on a monthly subscription model like movie streaming services.
5
Split entertainment memberships with your loved ones. Share the cost of a music, movie, or video game subscription with a friend or a roommate. If your immediate relatives are interested, some services offer family discounts at a reduced fee.[8]
Many services (like Netflix) allow users to add multiple users without spending more money.[9]
Method Two of Three:
Accessing Local Low-Budget Entertainment
1
Check out student, senior, or other discounts. Many entertainment venues offer special offers for seniors, students, certain club members (like the AAA or AARP) and members of the military. Ask about discount options to see if you qualify for any options.[10]
Talk to your high school or university to learn about student deals offered by local retailers, movie theaters, attractions, or restaurants.
Keep government-issued or student IDs on hand in case you need proof of identification.
2
Choose matinees over evening movies. Going to movies at less-popular times (like Monday afternoons instead of Saturday nights) can save you as much as half the ticket’s cost. If you can wait, avoid seeing movies until they hit the discount theaters to save even more.[11]
Buy your tickets online to receive additional pricing deals or snack coupons.
3
Watch for free community events. Start reading your local newsletters or searching online to catch free city events. Attend free lectures, holiday festivals, concerts, and performances for free or a small cost.[12]
Areas near universities or high schools often have low-cost plays, concerts, and sporting events open to the public.
4
Watch for discount days or happy hours. Some museums, recreation centers, and other public attractions have yearly free or reduced-fee days for the community. Other places (like swimming pools, bowling alleys, or restaurants) have “happy hours” where their prices are reduced daily or weekly during an allotted time. Keep tabs on places you frequent often and ask about upcoming discount opportunities.
5
Buy season passes to your favorite places. If you or your family frequent your city’s zoo, aquarium, museum, or amusement park, buy a season pass. Many season passes cost the amount of visiting two or three times. You might save a bundle each year by paying a little more up front.[13]
6
Volunteer at special events. Volunteering is a fun, meaningful way to serve your community while obtaining free admissions to plays, concerts, or festivals. Theater and music productions often bring on volunteers to usher people in or set-up/break sets afterwards. Contact the venue and ask about volunteering opportunities before you buy your ticket.[14]
Method Three of Three:
Spending Less on Vacation Entertainment
1
Travel during your destination’s off-season. Vacationing during the off-season can help you avoid seasonal tourist traps and save money on attractions. Without a large flow of travelers coming in, some entertainment venues might reduce their admissions costs. You’ll see more of the city’s culture while saving money along the way.[15]
2
Buy event or plane tickets several months in advance. Some companies offer as much as 20% discounts for people who purchase tickets in advance. Once you’ve scheduled your vacation, check how far in advance you can purchase plane or attraction tickets and whether you qualify for discounts.[16]
3
Purchase group deals online. Look for entertainment deals in the city you’re traveling to online. Coupon websites often have group deals available for popular entertainment options. Searching for group deals may help you find cheap entertainment options that you hadn’t considered before.
Popular group deal websites include: Groupon, LivingSocial, TravelZoo, and Local Flavor.[17]
Some vacation apps (like Foursquare or Scoutmob) let vacationers know about city discounts and occasionally offer coupons.[18]
4
Pack plenty of water and snacks. Tourist attractions might escalate the price of food and drinks, so take food with you to save money. Choose snacks that will be easy to eat while walking around or participating in the attraction. Always ask the venue about their policies on bringing outside food in beforehand to avoid throwing anything away.[19]
5
Spend time vacationing outdoors. Don’t forget to spend time outside while traveling, especially since many nature-related activities are free. Check out nearby trails, go on a run or bike ride, or ask locals what their favorite outdoor activities are.[20]
Rent a campsite to save money on lodging.
