We recently acquired an independently produced and distributed title that
disappeared on it's first circulation.

While the borrower admitted to having lost the disc, he refused to pay the
replacement charge because he assumed the colorful disc indicated that we
had loaned to him a copy we burned for the loan.

(Eventually he paid for the replacement)
