I used to work record retail when you could still buy some cd's in blister packs.

we'd get tons of returns due to people trashing their cd jewel cases in their vain attempts to get at their cd's. I dealt with one curmudgeon who managed to almost completely shatter his cd without being able to extract it from the blister pack. I have and image if him still smashing this thing in frustration.

funny thing is. made no difference to theft. the motivated shoplifter can be quite inventive. (I've seen way bigger things than that get lifted from a store- like a mac g4 cpu or rack gear screwed in the rack)
