CD-R King is a registered company allowed by the OMB to import blank, rewritable optical discs. Valenzuela (of OMB) said that the OMB is also seeking the cancellation of the license of CD-R King to sell optical media in the country.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, they were even found using pirated softwares in their business operations. Tsk tsk.
Coincidentally, OMB has recently conducted its â€œvalidation inspectionâ€ to verify a tip it received that the same company was using unlicensed software in its operations in the country.
CD-R hit the jackpot years ago after setting the trend of selling dirt-cheap recordable compact discs. They now have over 60 branches all over the country. I remember seeing their first store in Greenhills Virra Mall. The place was packed. It took me 30 minutes to get my stack of CD’s. Up to now, they’re selling CD’s like hotcakes. Goes to show that Pinoys have a penchant for sharing movies and songs (whoops). CD-R King has also ventured into super cheap computer accessories. Their mice, headphones, USB sticks are actually pretty good. Yeah, you can call it the poor man’s Best Buy.
It makes me wonder though if this whole sting operation was legitimate or is the OMB after something other than enforcing the law? Hmmm. Someone’s gonna have a ton of BenQ CD’s in his garage today, that’s for sure.
