Canon i960 - DCR printing

Why did Canon decide to market their new printer in two forms - i960 which
doesn't allow CDR printing (N America) and the i965 which does (Europe)?

I guess your answer lies in one word: RIAA

Who says it's them specifically. Somone holds a patent to direct to CD
printing in the US market (which sadly, the Caandain market is an
extrnsion of). I am not saying it is not the RIAA though, it could be.

I'm not sure, either. I just assume since there's so much fuzz about it in
USA. In Europe it seems it's not that much...
but maybe i'm wrong...who knows

Well, if you don't know who owns the patent, which is relatively trivial
to find out, that begs the question of how you know its a patent issue
at all!

A search of the US granted Patent Database yields two or three dozen
patents covering sticky label applicators, silk screen printing, direct
laser writing, thermal dye transfer writing, engraving(!) and heat
stamping, but nothing on inkjet printing to a CD surface.
