Hi Jason,

Yeah, that's pretty common. It doesn't mean you're being accused of sending
it out damaged, it just means the library that borrowed it wants you to
know they aren't the ones who damaged it. The important piece is that
there's a middleman in between those two things. They tend to squish stuff.
:) The more padding you can put on a DVD, the less likely you'll get those
notes. But even then, it's going to happen more often than you'd think.
