The ones I've suffered thru were both, with the gutenberg notice embedded in the ripped off copy.

No doubt their quality on some titles has gone up in recent years, but there is also a lot of dreck in the catalog (where it will remain unless rescanned and properly proofed).

the same is true of some other scanning projects, of course.
