So I was looking at the back of my Coleco controller. It says "Coleco" and then under that it says "MADE IN TAIWAN (Z)." the Z is in a circle, like the copyright logo, only it's a Z. Does anyone know what this means? Google was of no help. I tried (Z) and "Z in a circle," none of which had answers.

Not uncommon at all as the more involved you get with the CV, the more you will notice "Made in Taiwan" on items manufactured earlier on in the CV's existence. There were cartridge labels printed in Taiwan as well.

Yes, but what does the Z in a circle mean?

It must be a copyright/trademark symbol. You would have to research that thru some sites that deal with Taiwanese business laws.

 I'd be interested to hear from a couple others on that. What say you - Luc, Jean-Francois, Daniel, Martijn, Philipp, Dale, Gerry, Marc, Harvey?
