Samuel,

You' ve never done that, or did you? Because if you attempt to remove
a CD label, you'll surely take the DATA LAYER COATING WITH IT. See,
CD-R (and DVD-R) discs have the data layer on the opposite side of the
laser. That is to say, the laser passes THROUGH the plastic
(polycarbonate), and reaches the coating in the back (that is, the
upper side of the disc). Thus, when you put a label on top of a CD-R
(or DVD-R) you're putting glue on top of the data layer, and any
attempt to remove the label will damage it.

As in

It'd be better for the user to ask for their money back (or a
replacement CD) to whoever sold it to him/her.
