The Hybrid Theory EP has fetched several hundred dollars, from auctions on Web sites like eBay. Currently, the only way to obtain the EP is to purchase it from eBay, download it from any of a number of fansites or P2P File Sharing networks, or to participate in contests in the LPU in which the EP is awarded as a contest prize.

Care must also be taken when purchasing the CD on eBay, as it is easy confuse a re-release for an original copy, and to pay more than the CD is worth. The differences between the original pressing and the LPU re-release include: eBay headquarters in San Jose eBay North First Street satellite office campus (home to PayPal) eBay Inc. ...

  • The Re-Release of the Hybrid Theory EP's cover art is noticeably brighter than the EP's original release, and the picture in the inner cover is bluer in the re-release than the original.
