Videofolk--I do not as yet deal with DVDs, so I am ignorant on how to answer this question. I have a librarian who called to ask if you could indeed tell that if a DVD or CD was a bootleg by the color of the disc, as in the disc in question was had a purplish-blue cast on the play side rather than the customary silver. This sounds bogus to me--the bootleggers would be out of business if their discs were that easy to spot--but I lack real world experience to back up my supositions. Can you lovely people help? I haven't ever run into odd colored DVDs in my limited personal experience.
