security tag on brazil CC

i opened up my brazil and to my amazement was the security tag right there on disc 3 (see attached). now im wondering is there a sure fire way (though i doubt it) to remove it without damaging the disc or it leaving a mark? has anyone ever had this happen before? maybe i'm just making a big deal out of nothing, but... i am kind of annoyed by it (at the least, it's on disc 3). i've already sent a message to jon mulvaney.. hope they can replace it or something.

Submerge the disc in water, and let it soak for an hour or so.

It happened to me a few times. I used a hair dryer (low heat) to loosen the glue and it came off without a hitch.

I'd send the pic to Criterion and see if they'll send you a new disc. Which you did. So just sit and wait.

Just pull it off. Chances are it won't leave much of a mark, and if it does you can always just squirt a little Goo-Gone on it and then wipe it off with a soft cloth.

Just pull it off. This happened to me before. It won't affect the disc since the sticker is on the non-playing side.

Variable697,

Actually, the more sensitive side (the side that is more prone to problems) is the side that sticker thingy is on.

Except the non-playing side is the more fragile side. All you have is a thin label between you and the data pits, whereas the playing side is Lexan.

The tag may not be stuck on very well though, so it should come off fairly easility. Still, I'd warm it up slightly.

I always thought the reflective layer for DVD is actually sandwiched between the two polycarbonate layers. The reflective layer for CD is on the label side though.
