I recently e-mailed Mitsubishi about Verbatim disc and this is the reply I got
"you will find Mitsubishi discs branded Verbatim.
We are a 100% Mitsubishi subsidiary. As such Mitsubishi discs are exclusively branded "Verbatim" outside of Japan.
For further info please see our website www.verbatim-europe.com
Frankfurter Str. 63 - 69

So does this mean TY is owned by Mitsubishi ?
