Info

External SID resources - can be quite unreliable:
"Beware as SID codes belong to the equipment at a plant and not the company which owns the plant. As such they are transient from company to company when the plant and its equipment are sold and as such through time one SID code may belong to a number of Discogs entities.

Also bear in mind that some plant handle work for third-party vendors, who elect to have their company names used in the matrix instead of the actual press plant. These names when viewed in conjunction with SID codes which belong to the actual press plant, give a false impression that the SID belongs instead to the branded vendor.

An SID code alone should never be used alone in determining the correct company name and should not be used as the sole identifier. Also remember these lists are not wholly accurate, complete or definitive and should be used as supplemental information only: "
