Hmm... I tend to lean towards the first option (adhesive) as I would apply the same logic as with slip covers, but I'm not married to that choice so either one would be fine by me if I were an owner of that release.

Question: Is the adhesive designed in such a way it seems it was meant to be thrown out once the packaging was opened? Or could one keep the adhesive attached to the case?

I have the same disc as Blu-ray and the cover is the second image. The first thing came not with my Blu-ray. I tend to the real cover, the second.

If only we knew were all your wisdom with regards to Italian Blu-ray releases came from, then maybe your statement would actually carry some weight...

Back on topic: generally, I'm not a big fan of adhesives of any kind making their way into the database.

I don't see this release in your collection. How do you know this is a re-release?

It's a fair point though, IF indeed the original Italian release didn't have the sticker then the submission naturally should be the second cover.

My wisdon as you so sarcastically and insultingly put it comes from following the industry VERY closely. Distruict 9 is now an "old" title and has been availbale for many months, just over a year now. I know what the ORIGINAL release looked like and the reprinted sticky was done somewhere around an April-June 2010 time frame.

I tend to agree on this one. It's a similar situation as with cardboards-backs like the one of the Akira DVD:



The metal-case itself has an almost blank backside (only sporting a "pill"-symbol), so a piece of cardboard is added with the back-cover informations.

If it is the first release: The first pic (sticker).
On every similar question (half slip-covers, single sheets for back covers, ...) the answer was to use it.
Why not in this case?

Edit: example

Sorry, but my copy is the ORIGINAL copy of BD, I buyed it as soon as it was released.

Even if I accept what you say Kluge. Let's go another direction because it happens all the time, sometimes covers are different with the same UPC, multiple covers are sometimes printed, see 2012, sometimes stickies are applied for certain stores. In such cases it simply has to be first one in WINS. The second cover you show is the ORIGINAL release of District 9, they issued the same cover worldwide. So it is very possible that the sticky which was widely done later in the tyear was released to a specific retailer, that does NOT change that the Oroginal cover is still the Original cover, had you gotten yours in first, I would be telling the person asking the question relative to Original cover the exact same thing.

I have a different cover for 2012 than is in the database, same UPC, different cover, you don't see me talking about it or asking about it because I KNOW of the "problem", so what, the correct cover is in the database and my Cover is correct as well, but Profiler can only accommodate ONE cover, at this time, I have MY cover locally and that is all that really matters...RIGHT.

If it is the original cover, and I have no reason to doubt you, and it was available all over Italy, then that is the one that should be in the db.  If, however, it was only available for certain stores, then it shouldn't be...just my opinion.

There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
