So I'm thinking about joining this as I have some duplicates and some that we never watch.  My question though since I can't post on there w/o signing up: by original artwork do they just mean the case? Or do they mean the cardboard cover that comes with some DVD's?  I usually toss those in the recycling.  How would I know if it originally had a cardbaord cover?

Just the case. The cardboard cover used for promotional purposes is not required. (Though I'm sure nobody would object if you included it! LOL!)

I didn't think that's what it meant but I wanted to be sure before I signed up.  It would seem like an awful lot of DVD's would be unpostable if they had to have those.  Mine are usually destroyed by the kids or tossed out.

I'm fairly sure the art work they mean is that photocolor piece that slides in the plastic case, that should be the orginal that came with the movie.  The only time the outside cardboard is required is say for a TV series set, for example my Buffy DVD's come in a cardboard sleeve, which holds a plastic folder with 6 discs.  If I want to post that set (not in this life time o_O) I would have to be sure the outside box is included.
