Vivid is following the market and starts source-tagging its releases

Like a number of other publishers, Vivid Interactive just let us know that they will also start source-tagging their releases with new sensormatic ultra max source tags. This small, barely noticeable, acoustamagnetic tag is attiached to the inside of the disc box and will enable retailers to better control inventory
shrinkage and as such help prevent loss.

Many people feel, source-tags should become an industry standard and the increasing number of publishers that support the system, including Universal, Columbia and MGM, make it clear that this kind of protection for retailers is indeed on the way to become an industry-wide effort.
