Actually, it's really not...
* If it's described as "Region 0" or "all-region", it's probably pirated; there are a few legit regionless or multi-region anime DVDs out there, but not many
* If there is no English dub track, and the subtitles are in Chinese and English, it's almost certainly a bootleg; there are almost no official licenses for anime in Chinese-language markets

If all else fails, google the dvd image you're looking at. I was duped into buying the entire Eureka Seven Collection and saw friction Xamd on one of the discs. Not only that but what really pissed me off was that the quality of the video was aliased like hell. I then tried to sell it to a video store but they couldn't accept it. (ta da! Official confirmation of a bootleg!)
Even if i wanted to make a bootleg, i'm smart enough to know the difference between Xamd and Eureka Seven.
