(I’ve just read the newly started thread about “Alternate CD matrix/runout inscriptions: enough for a new release?” but decided to start a new one for my current problem…)
If a DVD-V is included, there’s always a BBFC (UK) or FSK (DE/AT) certification (or something that-like in other countries). Is this relevant for the release country categorization?
There are 3 cases:
- sticker attached to the packaging foil
- sticker attached directly to the cover
- printed on the cover
I’ve got all of these. One release I have edited recently (Synthesis) is set to release country Germany. That’s how it is on Discogs and I didn’t question it until I’ve seen the BBFC certification logo printed on the front cover (on Discogs too, see more images). It matches my release 100% (…sent to me from the UK). So is Discogs wrong?
On the disc are two certification logos printed: BBFC and FSK. Is it a German + UK release? Or UK only? (because of front and back)
If attached to the packaged product, it’s probably not a separate release (is it?), but what if the sticker is directly attached to the cover (prior to packaging)?
And/or, what if it’s printed on the DVD itself?
Or should I forget about these certification? (… as another local sticker could be attached to the packaging anyway)
(I don’t want to add my new scan images to an existing release (Fever Ray) if I have to make it a separate release because of what’s printed on it)
