Thanks for the quick reply, guys! Perhaps it's more a question of what is an "official" release then? Manufacturing quality (CD-R vs. industrially manufactured disc) could indicate a Doujin release, though it's not sufficient as a criterion as a lot of these fan projects seem to get a real factory pressing. However, officially licensed products (like PMM) should be listed as official releases in my opinion. The aforementioned OneUp Studios are a good case to differentiate this: their earlier releases like the "Very Best of SEGA" CD were properly licensed and would thus count as "official". They stopped doing that with "More than Mario", which is a prototypical Doujin project as you described it (commercial release without being licensed). What do you think?
