Star Trek Voyager bootleg question

Can anyone tell me if these are, in fact bootlegs? Or possibly foreign (non-US). If so... from where? Any help would be appreciated.. thanks!

I can't post links because I haven't been here long enough... so i had to take out the dots. sorry.

Where did you get them from?

What region are the DVD?

Have you looked on Amazon to see what the packaging looks like?

I did discover that the bar code is the same one used for a Friends set from Sweden.

Looks like a boot to me... and a search on the UPC says that it belongs to an overseas release of "Friends: Series 9"

It was off Ebay. I haven't actually received the set yet but after looking at the pictures more closely it doesn't look like an official release. The back picture looks like it's region 1 which is weird because I think I heard most bootlegs are 0.

They could print Region 26 on the back. Doesn't mean that is what's actually on the discs.

Re: Star Trek Voyager bootleg question

Does anyone know of any cases where two legit products share the same bar code? I'm sure it's possible but can't think of anything.

The only thing I can think of is PD releases. Some companies reuse bar codes there.

They reuse bar codes all the time with cds. A new cd may have the bar code of an older discontinued issue of a cd. The bar codes on the very first cd issues of Led Zeppelin cds are now on other cds.
