What is this black strip inside my blu ray case?

There is a black strip that is inside my blu ray case stuck on with adhesive. It has a small picture of a human hand that is in the middle of a target, kinda giving a message of not to touch it or something...Is this some sort of security strip? Itís really weird for it to be inside the case when you open it to get out the disc. Is it safe for me to take this black strip thing out?

ever heard of GPS? as the others have said, it's the perfect tracking device for those satellites to hone in on everything. they hide it in as something as obvious as the security band. einsteins...

Creepy!

You might be the target of something. Do your other disks have those strips?

It's there for Alan to stick his center channel speaker underneath a pile of soda cans.

Whatever you do... DO. NOT. REMOVE IT!

Trust me on this. You don't even want to know what would happen.

They folded a million dollar bill really small and stuck it inside that strip.....or it's full of anthrax and if you fold, bend, or mutilate it you'll die, I can't remember which...

Itís a geo tracker so Walmart can tell if you actually own the disc when you try to D2D it.

^^^ All of the above is correct. It’s a complex strip.

If you peel off the black thing and put it on the disc itself it will become write-able.

Anybody who's got Dragon Ball Z on Blu-ray is all right in my book. You can pull the strip off anytime and discard it. Those things are damned annoying. They're there in case you try to steal it from the store and it sets off an alarm when you try to leave. Something like that.

Pack your bags! You've found one of five tickets to a North Carolina blu ray distributing factory run by the eccentric and elusive Mr Bill Bellwell!
