So I've been reading about bootlegs and how completely uncool they are. I'd like to be proactive about making sure our dealer's room is clean and also educating both dealers and congoers alike in how to spot one.

Anyone have any tips on what to look for?

Thanks! Caitie

I've nudged one person I know who's done a few panels on identifying bootlegs. I'll try to get those resources posted once I get them.

In the meantime, a good place to start would be here.

One of the best panels I've ever seen on bootlegs is ran by Greg Ayres. Here is one of his panels I found on YouTube that is very good. It is broken into parts so there are a few videos. Greg not only gives a lot of good information but he is so much fun to watch and listen to.
