Why I Dislike Ordering CDs From The US

These bloody stickers on the top of the case.

I don't know if it's just me, but I can never take them off without them tearing and they always leave marks on the case.
It's becoming my biggest pet peeve in terms of CDs. I mean, why are they even there, other than to be annoying? The bar code is already on the back of the CD, and new CDs are wrapped anyway :shrugs:

I actually believe it's a type of anti-stealing tool. To prevent would-be thieves from opening it up and pocketing the disc. 

 

 That's what I think it's for, anyways.

That would make sense, but the cases are already sealed in shrinkwrap so I don't see how the sticker makes a difference there.

Here in the UK you would only ever see stickers like that on second-hand copies. And at least our stickers come off cleanly.

i bought that same album at Target a few months ago and it didn't have the tape thing on top (though it was sealed in shrinkwrap)

 

but that might've just been an anomaly ('cuz i usually get imported CD's, or just buy albums on iTunes)

Shrinkwrap is easy to pull off though, and easier to hide.
