    I think there's a difference between taking a case apart and "damaging" it. If, as MarfaPublicRadio claims, it was put back together without anything breaking off, I believe it should be approved. RE: all tape off, hmm. I think we should just say "CD case must be opened and disc removed" or something similar. I'm OK if a bit of sticker stays on.

    Yes, it was together again at the end. Was all the tape off? Hmmm.

  • United States Dan Leatherman

    The criteria states "may not damage CD case" - she takes it apart but does she get it back together?

    Hmmm, she used to work at a record store. And now handles incoming CDs at the radio station.
