Default Why Does Amazon.com (US) Get So Many Import Album Titles Wrong?

Why Does Amazon.com (US) Get So Many Import Album Titles Wrong?

Case-in-point, Chrono Trigger Arranged Version: The Brink of Time: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...&condition=new

They have the title reversed, as in, The Brink of Time: Chrono Trigger Arranged Version.

Not only that, but they're ~!@#$% stubborn about correcting wrong titles; I just sent a product information update, giving them the correct title, and they gave me an e-mail back, saying, "No, we've already researched all possible references, and we've determined we have the correct, current data."

Except I gave them the URL for the entry for this album here on VGMdb (http://vgmdb.net/album/298), and if you can't tell, the "Chrono Trigger" part of the title PRECEDES "The Brink of Time."

And this isn't the only instance in which AMZN has incorrect titles for soundtracks; I could go on for days pointing out stuff they've gotten wrong.

I mean, heck, if you're not willing to accept corrections to your catalog listings, why even provide the option?! For ~!@#$% and giggles?!

Anyone else want to talk to these stupid heads (AMZN), and tell them to get their act together?

Here's the link to try and correct the wrong title they have there: https://www.amazon.com/gp/gfix/welco...F6&merchantID=

Try your hand! I say we all STORM them!

For me, both of those are wrong titles, correct one for me is "Chrono Trigger" The Brink Of Time, taken from the spines.

But really, who cares how amazon, which does import stuff and asks bloody lot names them album, especially when you can find the album by using the common "Bring of Time".

I sell stuff on AMZN, too, and I want people to find the !@#$ album if they want it.

"Brink of Time" is going to bring up PLENTY more than just the entry for the Chrono Trigger album.

EDIT: Maybe not: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...f+Time&x=0&y=0

OKAY, here's the proper listing for it: http://www.amazon.com/Chrono-Trigger...3869468&sr=1-4

So, they have one labeled "Chrono Trigger Arranged Version: Brink of Time," and another one, reversed. And the reversed one looks like one that some other shmuck created themselves. Huh.

Maybe I should give the URL for the CORRECT listing for them to compare against, and let them scratch their heads over that?
